    I like to shoot color transparency film and then print it to B&W film for printing onto B&W paper (I just like extra work I guess). Normally I print 35mm color transparency film onto 4x5 internegatives, but I have a camera that shoots panoramic 35mm negatives now, which I have to print in my 4x5 enlarger. I can't enlarge to the internegative, or I won't be able to print it.

    I could print the wide-format transparencies onto 35mm B&W film either by contact or by projection at 1:1 in the enlarger. I'm trying to decide which would be best. I have never contact printed 35mm before. Does it work out well? Will the image be flipped wrong if I contact print vs enlarge?

    It'll work well either way. You can flip the b&w neg with no loss of quality.

    P.S. I use tmax 100 for duping from slides.
