    I also cut an extra frame's worth of blank film at the end of a roll. If you scan your film you can use that frame to calibrate the scanner. Just make sure you have some all black film and some all clear film. Then you'll have something to calibrate your film base and your D-max from.

    If you were truly OCD like a friend of mine you would do what he does and skip every other frame as you shoot.

    I think I am in danger...
    My 6x9 are always on the end.
    And so is my 4x5.

    Strange, my 4x5s are always at the beginning.

    That's the top.

    How much space did you get between frames?

    I have a Keystone. Wish I could get film for it. I do have a Bag Mag but it needs to be repaired.

    This falls under "vagaries of life". Like odd numbers of socks, rain on the parade, and the car being low on gas only when we're in a hurry.

    "Film is cheap." I've been known to shoot three frames of shots I think I'll really like. Some people bracket exposures but I rather take three at the setting I believe to be correct. That way I end up with a frame to print that isn't on the end in a strip of five. Plus, it gives me a backup in case the first one gets damaged somehow.

    The same thing has been happening with my slide copying experiments: I don't mount my slides; instead, I cut them in strips of six slides per strip. When I want to copy either the first or last frame on a strip, it's much harder to keep the film lined up and flat.

    How does one combat this problem? Is it worth it to cut the keepers off of the strip and store them separately? Do glass holders help keep strips of film from trying to fall out of the holder and getting crooked?
    Can anyone explain what the problem is here? Neg 1 and 6 are the same size and shape as neg 3 and 4, and the neg holder grips them the same.

    Negative curl, and getting a firm grip with the negative holder on the negative that wants to be free!
