I have a quick question about how much recording time one would expect with a 50' magazine.

On Alan Gordon I read 75 seconds with 24fps, which seemed pretty short to me.

Nope,

thats about right ...

theres always the top and tail that will be unused/exposed (tail exposed if you unload in light, at the very min a foot and a half unused due to threading and thats in the dark also) - the smaller the load the higher the % is taken up with unusable film

Yeh, thats what youd get if you could get every frame exposed correctly. Both calcs give that answer, but its not the reality of the physical situation of a 50' loaded daylight reel - 75 seconds is a pretty good 'safety' figure considering what I have already outlined...
