    Hi all,
    I'm thinking of purchasing a Kiev 4am rangefinder but I have one
    question first. I don't have access to a darkroom, or knowledge of how
    to use one, so I have to rely on labs to process my stuff. With the
    Kiev 4am, is it possible to just use a normal 35mm roll of film with
    the canster, and then rewind that and take it to the local place for
    printing?

    I only ask because different online manuals give different
    information. One states that the film must be removed completely from
    it's cartridge and loaded into a special cartridge that comes with the
    camera. That sounds very scary to me, especially since there is
    nowhere in the house that is 'completely dark'.

    Thanks.
