I just realized current Kodak film needs to be loaded in darkness. When I bought my Bolex H16, there were two expired spools with it, both Kodak. One was Tri-X. I just sent one of those two to the lab. Does older film also have to be loaded in darkness? At the moment I'm using Orwo. Is there other film that can be loaded in subdued light?

The current negative films are more easily edge-fogged during loading. There used to be an extra filter layer on the base of the 100ft spool filmstock that was removed about 15 years ago. Always load the "daylight spools" in as little light as possible.
