Hi Everybody,

Just a quick question here:

Wanted to confirm if it is possible to use a short end originated from a 1000ft load (300ft now) in a regular 400ft mag. Are the cores different? Is there anything I should know? And vice versa, can I use a 300ft short end originated from a 400ft load in a 1000ft mag? Specifically I am referring to the arriflex 35 III, but I'd assume the rules would be the same across all cameras?

Hope that makes sense. Thanks very much!

The plastic cores are the same size so if you're using a magazine that uses them you're fine.

Some Arri 400' mags don't have removable cores on the take-up side; you just slide off the roll, put it in the can and write "no core" on the can.
