AP Film Retriever
An essential tool for those moments when you've accidentally wound a film all the way back into its canister before it's finished! Simple and light, a life-saver to keep close at hand when you're out in the field. It is also useful for home development when you want to pull out an exposed reel (in darkness) without having to crack open the canister.
Please note that the film retriever model in the below video is slightly different to those available for sale - but the principle and technique is the same :-)
Where we ship
When you buy your camera film from us we can ship it across the UK, Europe, USA, New Zealand, Australia and Canada (more countries planned soon!) So buy your AP Film Retriever today and dive back into the fun of film photography!
If you want to develop your own film, you're going to need either a cannister opener or this little beauty. It takes a little getting used to, but it does exactly what it says. It retrieves your film. It is an essential item in your developing kit.
The instructions it came with weren't great but there are plenty of videos on YouTube.
Used it to retrieve a fully rewound film.
Follow instructions and you will be successful.
Very handy piece of kit for a film photographer.
Works and does what it says
Not the easiest instructions to follow but managed to get it to work eventually retrieving a roll of XP2. Quite difficult to move the reel counterclockwise, bear with it and pull out fast to get it to work.
