Using Fijifilm 200 speed. I am using an empty cartridge to wind the film into as I expose, but I don't know when to stop... anyone have an idea? Full rotation? Half?

I used the template from Corbis Ready Mech

You have to experiment with a burnt film or an already developped one.
The good news is that you have to know how much to turn with the first frames. As you wind more and more, with the same amount of turning, you'll wind more film so you will not have overlapped frames. The bad news is that you'll have less than the 36 frames that the film is capable of. You don't have the gears that engage the perforations of the film, and be able to do the same ammount of turns for every frame and have frames equally spaced along the film. With this one you'll have increasing spaces between frames.

Thanks for the info!

I found a direction on one of the templates that says to do one full rotation after each shot. Of course, when I did so, the tape snapped in the empty canister and the shot was gone... :T Time for some heavy duty tape!
