    I just use empty prescription bottles. The push to twist caps are fairly moisture proof.

    I put these in the prescript bottles because they leak granules fairly easily after bouncing around on the trail all day.

    You know how hard it is to find plastic film canisters nowadays?

    Some manufacturers are using plastic wrappers inside the box for 35mm film, but most still use canisters. Although those lids will only fit the kodak style canisters. SOL on Ilford, Fuji, and some others.

    I was having a little fun since so many people use digital cameras, so no plastic film cans...

    And I was having a little fun since many people don't realize that film photography is actually alive and well, albeit a niche market compared to its heyday. If I could only find those salt and pepper lids...

    I know that also, as my daughter shoots with and develops her own film. Mostly black and white.

    I gave up on film canisters when the stopped making the aluminium type. The tops on the plastic kind never stayed on all that well and salt and pepper got everywhere. I went if child proof pill bottles decades ago.

    That's what I have always used, but I find that the rotating lid doesn't actually seal very well and they tend to leak if they're not upright. It's amazing that we have an entire thread about how to carry salt and pepper while camping. There is a nearly limitless number of possible containers that would be perfectly adequate, yet somehow it's probably the most frustrating thing in my food box.

    It seem trivial, but 1) not having S&P because it all spilled out sucks 2) S&P leaking into everything in your grub box sucks.
    For some reason it's the little things that get to you on a long trip, this is in the top five for many of us.

    If you use the Morton shakers keep them in a zip lock bag. That seems to work pretty well for keeping salt out of the paper napkins.
