    Storing really long 120 negatives

    How do you all store your negs? Anything longer than 6x24 won't fit into my negative sleeves - I was thinking of keeping them rolled in sleeves, and then a box maybe? Seems like a hassle to keep track of.

    Looking for some suggestions I haven't already thought of.

    I store a 7x17 negative in half a sheet of 16x20 archival paper, cut to 16x17.5 inches and folded to 8x17.5. Since I bracket, the lesser shot is stored in-between. Stacks of them are stored on the 7 inch edge in an archival box. HollingerMetalEdge.com makes all sorts of archival box sizes. They even made up some for the ulf crowd that have sold well. Remind me when you are here next month and I will show and tell.

    Hmm ... that's an idea. Although it would be a long and skinny box!

    BTW - not next month, next weekend, right?

    Almost gotcha. 10 days, Sept 17th - 19th

    Yeah, long skinny box. It has the foot print of a sheet of film, about 7x17 and about 8 high. They don't make that exact one any more, but that probably isn't the exact size you need either.

    That would be long and skinny - 3" x 20" long and skinny actually.

    About 3 years ago I found a roll of flat plastic tube on Ebay. It was listed as "120 roll film sleeving" I'm not sure what its original use was. Maybe it was from a defunct commercial lab. It seems to be a very similar type of material as the Print File brand. The roll has got to be at least 200 ft, and it does a great job protecting my negs. Icost me less than $20 too. I guess I got lucky.

    Printfile actually sells this still. How do you store them after that though? Rolled? In some type of case?

    Store them hanging-in drum-boxes or open

    A panorama-expert(roundshot) told me to store them hanging. I store them in metallic and platic boxes(used for 30m rolls) and open rolled in normal boxes.
    sometimes i cannot cut very long shots.

    Hmm ... maybe a metal canister would work too. Something like what 70mm film comes / came in.

    I store my 70 mm negs in 16x20 boxes, in long sleeves, flat. I put cardboard dividers in to keep them in rows. Works great. I'll wrap groups of negs in folded marked letter sized sheets to mark them.
