    Thanks for the info, Folks. As usual, very thorough. I'll start with 8 1/2 x 11 paper.

    Good Evening, Mark,

    Start with what Ken says, slightly larger paper; with a little cheating, enough information from all ten frames can usually be squeezed on. Consider, however, that few of us get 10 exposures per roll which we actually want to print anyway. Sacrificing a worthless frame leaves 9 frames which will fit easily (strips of three, horizontally), even on an 8 x 10 sheet.

    This is the problem I have when I shoot. Since I bracket my shots for landscapes, I get three sets of three leaving the 10th picture with a choice to take without bracketing or not taking it. I usually take it anyway.

    Good Evening, Allen,

    I often do exactly the same thing. Of course, you can always save up those tenth frames until you have enough to fill up a separate contact sheet.

    Hello Folks, thanks for all the suggestions. I did get some Ilford 8 1/2 x 11 from B&H, and it is working out fine. I'm not happy about the wasted space on the 8 1/2 x 11 page, but it's better than wrestling with 8x10.

    It's so much easier with 6x6, 6x9, 6x12, and 6x4 1/2


    Cheers,

    -- Mark
