squeezing film

Slang, the act of utilizing all unexposed film on a roll for economic reasons. Squeezing is discouraged because it leads to misloads, and the possibility of missing critical photographic moments.

Squeezed rolls of film typically capture 37 to 40 frames instead of a standard 36 frames. This often leads to damage of the extra frames during storage.
