That is the ARRI collapsable core. The Idea is that sometimes the regulate core gets stuck on the spindle a bit and the film can cone as you remove it from the mag. It is definitely better to stick a regular 2" core inside there after you pull off the film. Otherwise the stick could unspool some in the center and then the lab may end up scratching some film when they try to insert a. Core (which they have to do).
Mitch, would it matter that the end of the film is not placed in the little slit located on the core once i insert the plastic core in the film? cause that would be hard to do in my little changing bag...lol, I have enough to do in that bag as it is...
