    Any Nikon AF FILM SLRs that leaves the leader out on rewind?

    My Q is the topic.
    I just bought a nice AF lens in a Nikon Mount, but no f/stop ring. Thought I would get an AF BODY. BTW, I need to preload my film on developing reels before I put it in a changing bag.. Long story.

    Back when I managed / owned one hour photo labs we had a little tool that would pull the tab out so we could tape it on the plastic card so it could go through the developer. I will see if I can look that up.

    And here it is

    I have one for my Konica FS-1, I am about 1 out 8 tries right now.. 😂

    That's why I want a camera that has an option to leave the leader out.

    If you're souping your own film, why not just not rewind the film at all and open the camera in the dark when you're ready to load the film onto the spool?

    Otherwise, the leader retrieval tool is your best bet.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!

    All film cameras were designed to completely rewind the film so you would not accidently think it was a fresh roll of film and shoot it again. We would get people all the time that would not completely rewind the film and then load it back into the camera and shoot it again. The entire roll would be double exposed. The funny part was they would ask us to separate them so they could get all their important photos back.

    Back when I was developing my own film, in the 1970s through 1990s, I always used a standard bottle opener (the type intended to remove the type of lids that were common on bottles of soda back then) to pry the end off of a film cartridge to get the film out. That is, unless I was using bulk film, which I loaded into reusable cartridges that were designed to be opened more easily than that.

    That's easy to do!

    Just run the roll through the developing process again!

    We also had people that would fail to load the film correctly so if never actually went through the camera so none of it was exposed at all. they would scream at us saying we lost their photos. We had the film showing it was processes correctly and was never exposed. We would lose a customer over that.

    How many would say they'd load the film, take some shots, then open the back and mark the film with a Sharpie, close it, take some more shots, then open the back again to see if the film had moved? Ever get that one?

    To answer original question there is a camera back for the F3 that leaves the leader out when using the MD-4 to rewind
