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 frame
out of the film often leaves no room for the processor to attach things like
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 white
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 that
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.

I pay and have paid for and expect 36 exposure for many, many years -
everything over and above that is a gift.
