    Guys, what hole ?

    I have some Acros Readyloads to try and have not yet opened the packet

    I just assumed there would be a line on the Readyload like on the Kodak to show the limit for the cover

    What should I be looking out for?

    Many thanks

    If it is what I think it is, Fuji is probably punching a small round hole in one corner of the sheet film. Lots of manufacturers used to do this. You can then hang up your negatives to dry with a bent paper-clip.

    It would be outside the area of negative normally visible in the negative holder of an enlarger. It is only of some concern and interest to those contact printers that like to show the very edges of the negative, including the rebate.

    This will only be visible once you process the film, you can't notice anything on the outside of the packet.

    The hole could be used for hanging, but I don't do this.

    It does show up in the image area for my camera and negative holders. As such I am required to crop off a bit of either the top or the side to get rid of it. So it's an issue for more than contact printers. It is also on Fuji's color negative film, but doesn't seem to be on any of the transparency films.
