I took an exposed piece of 4x5 film and made marks on my cutter so I could cut it down to fit in the film holders.
    It does go contrasty fast, but it's still fun to play with if you want to make cyanotypes with the result or just want to play a little for less than regular sheet film. Not every shot has to be totally serious!
    Thanks Bethe, but that looks like too much work cutting down, plus I would never need that many sheets, 50 for $10 is fine for playing with, having to cut 25 sheets into 100 sheets for $20 isn't as much fun... haha but good to know.

    THE BOOK = " the view camera book "
    its a steve simmons production ( as in view camera magazine )

    i think the ansel adams "the camera" also deals with a view camera if you can find that
    its part of " the trifecta " ( camera print negative )

    a library might have both or either or or all 3 or 4

    As someone who has done this, I agree. Below is a shot from earlier this year on Kodalith Ortho Type 3 that expired in 1994. The film base is indeed much thinner than with normal film, but it slides right into my 4x5 holders without trimming. It took some experimenting with very dilute developer and shortened processing times to find a method that pulls some tonality out of this very contrasty film. If you can get it cheap, I say go for it.

    Cool thanks. Maybe once I've perfected using the 4x5
