You're already using the best and simplest method that many have used for
years and it's "free!".

It may not "look elegant" in your eyes, but who cares? There's too many
shooters out there more concerned about their "Leica looking elegant" than
just accepting it's nothing more than a tool to take pictures. The film box
tear off is practical, slip in hot shoe simple and doesn't cost a penny! So
what's the problem?

Another thought is, don't stop shooting until you've used the last frame and
always leave your camera empty so you must load it the next time you go out
to shoot. Then you never have this concern.
