    Cutting 5x12 From 16x20 For Korona Banquet

    I'm thinking of buying a Korona 5x12... if I can raise enough cash or trade items.

    Does anyone know if I can get 4 "full" sheets of 5x12 from 1 sheet of 16x20? Also, is the remaining piece large enough to cut 2 "full" sheets of 4x10?

    Mike I've done this with 12x20 film for my 5x12, it works fine. I've never had any 16x20 film to play with.

    5x4=20. 12 is 4 less than 16. 10x2=20. So, yup.
    Thank you.

    Or . . . 16x20=320. 5x12=60. 4x10=40. (60x4)+(40x2) 240+80=320. So, yup.
    Thank you.

    And you're sure one piece won't be 1/16" (or whatever) too short?

    If you're concerned, get 11x14 and cut it down to 2 5x12s. The size is much easier to come by, and cheaper to boot.

    That's a good idea but if I can cut without any waste that's even better. If

    Yes I've cut down 11x14 as well, this was all before 5x12 became readily available. Now I just buy 5x12 precut.

    If you can make your cuts EXACT, there will be no overlap/excess/loss. But it has to be EXACT. 4- 5x12's and 2- 4x10's. Imagine your 16x20 in landscape position. You place 4 5x12's in portrait across the top. That spans the twenty inches. Place 2- 4x10's in landscape across the bottom, end to end and this takes up the four inches left over vertically and spans, again, 20 inches.
    Thank you.

    Christopher.. yes that's precisely what I'm proposing. I just didn't know if film measurement was slightly off with different sizes which would throw off the sizes of the final cuts.
