I was given 2 boxes of 5x7 Ektapan dated 12-03-05 and one box is used with open bags. The other box has 75 sheets in unopened bags. I don't shoot 5x7 and was wondering if anyone has cut down film to 4x5? I don't think I would have any problem doing this. I did take one sheet out and used a cutter to cut it down and it looked good. Doing it in the dark wouldn't be a problem. My darkroom is light tight. Anyone done this and how did it work out.
I would wear cotton gloves to not mess up the emulsion side. I would make one cut and seal them back up and set up for other cut. Then cut the last cut with all of them. I would also have the emulsion side up at all times.
