    One more tip from a fellow newb. Butzi briefly mentions putting an identifying notch in the flap http://www.jbhphoto.com/articles/filmno/filmholder1.htm shows the idea in more detail.

    Fellows,

    Don't makes this more complicated than it is. If you are holding the film in a vertical position the notch will be on the top right, when the emulsion is facing you. If you are holding the film in a horizontal position the notches will be on the bottom right, with the emulsion facing you. If the film is square the notch could be on either the top right or bottom right with the emulsion facing you.

    I have never used notched film that did not follow this orientation.

    Ouch! Did you discover you're mistake before or after you exposed the film?

    If you're still wondering, the Delta 100 fact sheet tells you everything you need to know on page 1.

    Dear Tom,

    The good news is that there are no exceptions to the rule with Fuji/Ilford/Kodak. I checked the B&H web site and there were no reviews that referred to an anomalous notch position, just that the notches were different from TMX (which is good news!).

    Seems to me that it would be REALLY stupid for a manufacturer to deviate from that standard.
