Panaflex 35mm Mag Loading

Anyone have suggestions on how to get a mag just to practice with?

I've never run into a rental house that thought it was strange that people came by to learn how to load mags or gear. Just give them a call and tell them you want to come down and learn a mag or whatever and when would be a good time. They should be more than willing to help you because they don't want you to mess their gear up down the road and because techs love to show people how to use things.

In all honesty, they're the easiest mags to load. You don't have to set a loop size, just put fresh film on the left, poke film out the throat and back in the other side, and attach it to a core and give it a few turns. Film makes a 99 rather than arri's 9P.
