As I will be going back to black and white film again sometime in the future, I seem to remember having all sorts of problems fiddling about in a changing bag, trying get a length of bulk film into the cassette getting sweatier and sweatier as I went. Is there an easier way of doing it in this age of modern technology?

Nikon D90

AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.8D

AF-S Nikkor 18-55 1:3.5 - 5.6G

AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm 1:4.5 - 5.6G

Nikon SB-600 Speedlight



Nikkor 28-80 f3.3-f5.6

"A long time ago" there were loaders designed for bulk film. Roll on one side, cassette on the other- and a crank.

Nikkor-SC 5cm F1.5. And maybe 100 or so other Nikkor lenses. Maybe 60 of those are on Nikon cameras right now.

And if you are like me..go to Youtube and view a clip or two. I brought out my RB67 and C330 but before I started using them again, I viewed clips to put the PJski back in orbit using them.


Good stuff from BrianS as well.
