i loaded a standard roll w/ 36 frames into my camera. after it wound the film it indicates 37 remaining exposures. did I improperly load the film? is the whole roll fucked now?
36 is only a conservative estimate. With the right camera and some practice, you can actually get a full 40 frames off one roll. Some cameras have sufficiently sophisticated film advance mechanisms that they can get an extra frame off every roll for you.
