DX-Coded Labels

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Robert Meyers, Nov 25, 2003.

  1. Hello all,


    I am interested in loading my own film cartridges. I have run into one
    question I have not yet been able to find an answer for: how do you print a
    DX-Code barcode for your film (in my case NPS mainly)? I prefer my film to
    be preset to whatever it is, and not need to alter the rules of my cameras
    (as I will normally have a different speed in each).

    Could someone please point me in the direction?

    Thanks all!

    You can get DX labels printed on heavy adhesive foil from Porters
    (online). If I recall correctly, they don't have them for every ASA
    speed. I've had luck attaching segments of these labels to already
    DX-coded cannisters to alter the way the camera reads them. I don't
    think it would be easy to make your own.

  3. The bar code relies on electrical conductivity between the non-black parts.
