    Where are film canisters sold? Local camera shops have all gone digital, so didn't have any.....Can any small plastic mountable container do?

    I get mine from Henry's camera shop. Just ask them if they have any in the trash you can have. I get 5-10 every time I try one out. I know people have used (well cleaned) pill containers, I've even seen little containers at the dollar store that would work.

    Any small plastic container can definitely work. Wash them well and let them air dry for many days before using them. I get my film cans from a local store for 25 cents each. Call around local stores that still develop film.
