Subject: [Leica] Bulk loaded films and R8
From: "Aram Langhans" <>

Is there any difference in loading film into a plastic vs metal canister?  I
am thinking specifically of the foam seals on the R8.  In my old Rollei w/o
a window it never seemed to matter.  I put a roll in a plastic canister in
my R8 and the foam seal really seemed like it  pressed on the felt trap a
lot more.  The film seemed harder to wind, or perhaps it was just that
canister.  It took more pressure to close the back, too.  I don't want to
damage the foam seal by compressing it too much for too long a time.  It
might not seal well on a metal canister after that.

Any words of wisdom???
