I recently came by what was described to me as a arri III 400' magazine. It looks like my arri II mags and it fits on my IIB fine. No problems. I havn't done a film test yet but it look pretty light tight. However, The take-up spool is a little unusual to me. It is what I have seen described as a "collapsable core." It is fixed in place and will not come out with using screw drivers or alan wrenches. I feel a bit like a novice asking but how are these cores supposed to work? I see how to load film onto them, and how the core expands when the film is locked into place with the little lever, and how when the lever is released the core shrinks in size allowing the exposed film to be taken off of the core. But this can't be how the lab want to get a negative is it? With out a core? Could some one let me know what the procedure is with these things?

Thanks much.

Hi- you can stick an old plastic core back into the center of the film roll, or just send it in without a core, but it's good form to let the lab know by noting "no core" or something similar on your camera report.
