    Posted: 08 November 2018 at 18:14
Hello everybody, I'm just new to the forum, though Im asking for old information.
My Alpha 7 works just fine, but the rewind custom settings are set to wind back the film at precisely 36 frames.
I develop B/W by myself, and I easealy could get a couple more frames from each 35mm roll. I cant find the camera's manual online.
Do you know which Custom setting allows the camera to rewind the film just when is totally exposed?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you all people for your help! and...

1- yeap, I was a dummy I didn't figure out the link

2- On top of it there is no spolution to this issue on the Cut. Func. Maybe this is the way they meant the camera to wor. Weird but possible.

Using cartidges spooled at home it was quite usual that the camera started rewinding prematurely, though I assumed it was because of some extra tension in the film, etc.

If you're using non-DX coded film, then it will automatically rewind after 36 exposures (or earlier if the roll is shorter).

It says it on p22 of the manual:

"Non-DX-coded film is automatically rewound at the end of the roll or after 36 exposures"

I don't know if they're still made but there used to be stick-on DX-code labels available to put on your home-spooled cartridges.

Otherwise, when you are using DX-coded film, if you set Custom 2 to "2" (manual) then it should keep going until the film physically can't unwind any further.

When using home spooled film, I always re used DX coded cartridges, to avoid the fuzz of changil ISO values etc. So there is no chance that the camera started rewinding because of no DX coding.

I'll give it a try to Cust.Func 2-2, though I fear that just it will stop windind the film at the 36th exp.

I'll let you know what happens next!

I don't recall doing manual rewinding, but IIRC I used to routinely get 37 frames on mine with Kodak, Agfa, and Fuji films. I will dig some out and check.
Nice you're using film. I still would if I could, but for the cost. The D7 is a great little cracker. The only AF body I preferred was the older, bigger and heavier D9, which for me was the best film body I ever had, and was more robust than the current digital offerings by a mile (and I've been using an SLR/DSLR since 1980....).

I'm contemplating an house move, and I may have to part with one or both, as well as some of my older lenses. It's going to be a wrench, even though I don't use them any more.

On the tiny Rollei 35 I used to get 39 shots, but one of them always had a bit of tape across the middle!

Eclipse, I'm considering in getting either a Minolta 9 or a 5. The 9 is a true pro body with one of a kind shutter, but the diminutive size of the 5, plus much more AF points and being able to use lenses with built in motors makes it a more sensible choice for me. And we have not talked about the price!

I happily transitioned to digital, specially for color photography, but in late times I'm using film more and more for personal projects. Paid assigments are digital only, of course.

Yes, the 5 is a much under-rated camera. Simple to use, lots of custom functions (though need a crib-sheet to use them), and I think the built-in flash acts a WL controller for both the old and new flash protocols. The pentamirror is not as good as the pentaprism, of course, and quite a lot of them suffer from stained mirrors (dark blue or yellow streaks). The late 28-100mm that came with the 4 is a pretty good lens for its size and weight, so long as you don't expect sharp wide-angle corners at full aperture.

Personally, my favourite film SLR (apart from the old Miranda F) is the 600si with its wonderfully retro controls.
