OK, One frame of 35mm film is just shy of being 1 1/2 inches long. A roll
of 24 exposures is about 3 feet, eight inches long (these are approximates).
I would suggest that if you were rolling film for 12 exposure rolls I would
put about 1 foot, 10 inches, to 2 feet of film on each roll. Of course, the
real variable is how large your bulk loader is and how many "cranks" it
takes to equal one roll of 24 exposures. I HATE bulk loaders because of the
difficulty in calculating how many turns of the crank it takes to get a
specific number of shots on a roll.

Hope I have been of help. Lynne

roll of film? I'm going to be selling 12 exp rolls to my photo students and

am trying to figure out how much to charge, but being mathematically
