This helps me determine what type film in camera

This maybe moved if not in correct subject head.

I've used different methods to determine what film I have in my camera. Reason, many times I will have different films in each camera and use based on conditions and what I want to accomplish. With Leica some have the circular piece but that tells speed not type of film such as Pan F Plus or Delta 100 and so on.

To help me remember what film I have in my camera I now use Post it Notes page markers. I write the type of film in the camera, using a sharpie pen then either putting it on the base plate or the bottom of the case the camera is in. They fit with no overlap.

Thought I would mention it here to help.

Here is a plsce to buy them:

Since I carry an Iphone with me I make a note when I load a certain film in what camera. When I complete the roll I just delete the note. Helps me to remember.

I put a small piece of masking tape on the top of the film can with the film ID on it, and transfer it to the top of the camera when I change film. In the vein of taping your camera from another running thread, I cover the "Leica" with the film ID tag. :-)

Thanks.

So far I like the Post It Note as I can use a Sharpie and write on the note before I put it on my camera.

All good ideas to help.

i use a small square cut from the end of the film box in my hot shoe or a square of thin cardboard with the type written on it in the hot shoe.

If you're using a flash or shoe mounted meter then colored dots from the office supply work. Use green for one kind of film, red for another and so on. Make a card with the various color dots and indicate on it the type of film.

I like the blue 3M painters tape. I buy 2" width roll of tape which I use when I re-load my film cassettes. The width works for me to get on to the film and wrap around the cassette on to the under side of the film. I cut off about a 1 inch piece for each roll and it works for me. When I load the film on to the dveloping reel, taking the tape off leaves no residue.
