Develop partially rolled film roll?

Hey folks!

So a little while ago I scored an ME Super. I got me some film and tossed it in there. It was a fresh roll of Fujifilm Superia 200. 36 shots later I finished the roll.

I wound up the film using the little wind up crank thing built into the camera. I kept going until the tension changed on the crank and popped the back open to toss the roll into a canister and the film had not fully been spun into the film roll. Rookie move, I know.

Can this roll be developed still? Id say about 85% of the roll was spun back into the film roll. I might have lost the first four or five shots on the roll but would like to get the rest developed.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cool. That’s what I was thinking but being new to film I thought I’d ask.

Thanks Aaron28!

Usually when the film is all the way into the cartridge, you'll have almost no tension on the crank and you can probably hear a little "flutter - flutter" as the crank is turned and the film end flips by the cartridge entrance slot. In any case, you can't over crank it and too much is forgiving while too little................ well you know that story now
Good luck on your film shooting.

It feels grievous to spoil film as its so expensive to buy and develop, I have done a similar thing and yes it should be developed.
