A quality film retriever is 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 :-)

A little fiddly to put the tongues in the canister, but once done the retriever is easy to use. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I have used others in the past and they don't work nearly as well. Highly recommend.
My Olympus MJUII decided to roll the leader back into the canister on some Lomochrome purple so thought I would invest and I'm all kinds of glad I did. The method is simple when following the video on site so thanks so much for that. A great little tool worth buying.
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.
Easy to understand instructions meant I successfully retrieved the leader on just my second attempt - this method easily beats opening up the cartridge, getting the leader out and trying to get the end of the cartridge back on (in the dark).
