Can you let film roll stay in camera?
Practically, you’ll be fine leaving a roll in the camera unless you’re planning to put it down for a decade or two. It depends on the film, but in most cases, years. The big exception is Ilford Pan F, which has big problems with latent image retention.
Can you load film in daylight?
Can you load film in the light? You can load film in the light, as only the leader should be exposed. But try to avoid loading your film in bright daylight if possible. You can simply turn away from the sun or shield your camera from the light with your hands.
Which is better digital or film camera?

How long can a roll of film stay in the camera?
As long as the temperature is not overly high, and you are going to be developing in a few months you should be fine. I think the maximum time I’ve left color print film in camera is about 9 months (ASA 100) with no noticeable color shifting or fogging.
How long does a roll of undeveloped film last?
You’ll be fine for at least two years.
How long can I leave my film undeveloped?
Originally Answered: How long can an old film be developed? Film should really be developed within a year of being exposed. After 2 years to 5 years, it might get a little grainy, and the colors might shift/fade a little bit.

Can 35mm film be exposed to light?
Not a problem, just turn your back to the sun or brightest light to shield the film and camera. Since 35mm film has leader length to the film, yes, you could load in direct light but there could be some light fogging into the first frame of images, so best to shield it a bit.
Can undeveloped film be exposed to light?
Avoiding it: The best way to avoid light leaks (if you don’t love them that is) is to be sure that your camera has fresh light seals and that you avoid exposing your undeveloped film rolls to bright light for any period of time.
How do you know if a film is loaded properly?
Don’t worry, there is an easy way to determine if the film is moving forward or not. When you use the film advance to wind the film, you simply have to check if the knob on the left (that you use to rewind the film) is turning. If it turns, good, it means that the film is properly engaged.
