So the conclusion is - don't try to squeeze out an extra frame or two?

| While that is not in question; what often is in question is the fact that
| given the shorter lengths of leader any attempts to squeeze that extra
| out of the film often leaves no room for the processor to attach things
| processing clips for dip and dunk, leader tape for roller processing, or
| drying clips if the film is hung up to dry as in the case of black and
| films done in custom labs. As a result those extra frames frequently are
| damaged in one way or another due tot he mechanics of processing and the
| need for a frame or two of open space at either end. Many people think
| because they can squeeze an extra frame or two on the roll - gift or not -
| they should be able to expect to get the image on those extra frames back
| undamaged as if they were within the normal range of frames for that roll,
| be it 12, 24, 36 exposures.
