I have a Canon 310XL, and as I am very new to 8mm filming, I followed the instructions of a video online for this model and loading film into it - I loaded it and filmed, the Ft. gauge on the side of the camera is now at 50ft, and it hasn't stopped filming or clicked now that it's reached 50ft, the engine keeps spinning - I'm wondering if this is normal for this model or not, as when I open the side of the camera, I can see that not 1 or 2 of the "notches" are pressed down from the canister of film, perhaps this roll needed a "notch hack" or the film doesn't need to hit one of the internal meter notches or something similar.... So, my question is: Can I take the canister out and have it developed as soon as it's hit 50ft? Because it seems like neither of the 2 notches were clicked into place, will that affect my film?
I filmed in daylight, with no 85 filter applied, and no light meter button raised. It's been on the 50ft mark for awhile and I've kept filming every now and then to see if it'd click or stop running, but it hasn't, would that mean the final frame of the film is still being filmed over?
Any help would be great.
