Twice now over two weeks I have went into the changing bag only to find about an inch of tightly wound film on the core on the takeup side of the mag, and about 300 more feet of floppy mess. Its as if the core stopped spinning and the camera pushed the rest of the film through into the mag... If the core is locked with the pin, I don't see how that can happen.
When I watch the camera, running an entire roll of 400' through it works every time. But for some reason, starting and stopping like normal, with takes ranging in the 50 - 90 foot realm I get a floppy pancake. Has anyone else ever experienced this problem?
It doesn't seem to do it every time, and I'm forced to wind it back onto the core by hand otherwise it wont fit in the black bag.
I'm sure the lab loves me. HA!
