Anyone have experience with this? I have backing paper ready to tape to the back of it. If I choose to do a few extra rolls without backing paper, does anyone know a cheat sheet for how many turns each photo would need?I'm using a Kodak Vigilant Junior.

Thanks!

Perhaps make a dummy film using print paper taped together to the correct length. attach it to the spool then with the back of the camera open, mark the paper at the roll-end then wind on and count how many turns it takes to get to the spool-end. Make a note how far you must wind each frame as each wind will be different as the spool fills up.

In fact why not make your own backing paper this way - use black paper and a chinagraph or white ink pen (a cuticle pen will work - ask the wife)

Thanks Phil! So black print paper will protect the film enough if I check the red window between shots?

I hope so, it did for me but theres many different types of black paper. I used black art paper in a pad. When I did it I put a length of 35mm film onto a 127 sized backing paper.
