I've just shot two test rolls of film. Do I simply just take them out of the camera and then send it for processing? Does it need to be taken out in a dark room? Does it need to be mailed in a particular way?

I would prefer the responder to email the answer to me as well if it isn't too much trouble.

How did you manage to shoot the second cartridge without taking the first one out of the camera?

You can take the film out of the camera as is.

If the film has completely run to the end, you should see end of the film in the visible area of the cartridge where six frames are exposed.

Film labs can be found at

You are very welcome.

I admit I'm curious what type of situation motivated you to just grab a couple of Super-8 cartridges and Super-8 cameras and start filming even though you didn't know much about the Super-8 format.
