    Xpan Contact Sheet

    Hello all,
    I was wondering what negative pages you xpan users use to file your negs that allow for a contact sheet of a whole roll(a 36exp roll shot in panorama mode) to be made on one 8x10/8x5x11 sheet of paper?
    Please let me know

    the same ones I use for standard 35mm.

    I don't have an xpan, just borrow a friends when I use it.

    I use the 7 rows x6 negs/strip from Freestyle.

    since I shoot MF(6X7) as well, I make contact sheets on 10x12(cut from rolls for color) or 11x14 paper(cut down to 10x12 after processing), cause the page size is perfect for this 10x12, just fits.

    I get Print File pages that will hold 3 XPAN frames across, but the whole roll won't fit in the page. I save the extras as a new page.

    I also use Print file pages with 3 frames across and 7 down and the contact sheet looks great.
    But you will have to use 9½ x 12 paper not 8 x 10.

    ive come to the conclusion that contact sheets are best fit for 11x14 paper, no matter the format. a 35mm 36 exp roll will simply not fit on 8x10 paper, and neither will my 10 6x7 shots from the mamiya. as much as i try saving paper i think making contact sheets on 11x14 is the ebst option.

    I use a Patterson Contact Printing Frame 35mm for years and have had no problems. There is even space to enter location of the shots and dev. details.
