    I have a roll of aerial film, 8" wide, so it would be a case of slitting this and attaching to backing paper. I might use thin light proof cloth instead of backing paper I have plenty that I use for shutter restorations and it would be re-useable. Alternatively I might make my own backing paper, I have some ideas that should work.

    I'll do much the same as you're suggesting to find where to mark a backing paper. Now I need to find some adverts etc for 110 cameras/film to see how many exposures were on a film, Houghtons films for similar formats seem to be 6 exposures. I guess it's what'll fit on a spool as well.

    One of my unfinished projects is a horizontal only 5x7 or 6x17 camera. I had a spare set of bellows from my DeVere 54 enlarger which are rectangular and will clear a 5x7 negative.
