Any advice as to where I can get a roll of dummy 16mm film? Or do any of you own a spare roll that could send it to Maryland this week if I pay for shipping?

 

Need it by the weekend. Thanks!

I am sure any of the local filmlabs can help you, just give them a call.

There are no local film labs unfortunately. Everything is multiple states away. Plus none of the local rental houses have film cameras so that's not an option either.

I had this same problem a little while ago while learning to load my camera. I ended up just finding a cheap roll of expired film on Ebay because I wasn't sure if you could just ask film labs for scrap film.

I've got a ton of dummy loads that are like 80-120' on core if anyone needs them in the future. Just email me drewbienemann (at) gmail.com
