Go beg to get an ordinary cartridge with the desired ISO code from a film processing outfit! You can load film into an ordinary cartridge. Use a bottle opener to remove the top and get to the spool.

The DX code is a pattern of conductive/non-conductive surfaces on the cartridge. The commonly available 100 ISO reusable DX cartridges can be "hacked" to support other ISO values by stripping/masking the appropriate regions. It is a lot of trouble, but might be worth the effort.

I would recommend getting a camera that allows you to specify the ISO, but you could also just use exposure compensation/math to come up with the correct exposure. It is possible to buy DX coded canisters though.

All I have ever used to load film in are used cartridges, that's why I have a box full to choose from. It does help that I develop my own film and I always save the cartridges. As Ole said, I'm sure that a friendly local processor would
be willing to give you some used cartridges as they only throw them away.
