Help needed unloading Arri bl
Posted 12 August 2007 - 07:30 PM
I have recently finished shooting my first short film on film. I've shot two magazines worth of film, 800 foot in total. I was just trying to unload the film, i was in total darkness, but i'm finding it rather hard to get out. I'm being careful because i don't want to pull it off the spool. I was wondering if anyone has some tips for unloading film out of Arri 16bl magazines?

The film is on a standard plastic core not a collapsible one.
What can sometimes help is pushing in the center button of the core adapter, and releasing the whole thing- the roll of film and the core adapter- and then pushing the core adapter out. Just remember to take the core adapter out at the end and not to send it to the lab!
