Besides, a camera problem is usually (Ok, not always) picked up at the
shoot (magazine noise, gate check etc, and another take isn't a
disaster.  Damaged negative a day later causes much greater problems to
the production.

Hear hear. Worth re-quoting as is. The mechanical properties of
sprockets and celluloid are every bit as critical as the electronic
properties of the rest of the chain, and require as much specialised
knowledge.
