    This Internet thing is just a fad.

    Are these Paterson ones different in allowing you to contact those onto 8x10, though? I have some strips of six pages but I don't like using them for that reason. They don't allow contacting onto 8x10 as they just wont fit. I have to dump all the strips out and carefully arrange them horizontally on an 8x10 sheet, which I find a hassle. Although, naturally enough, you get a sharper, more informative contact sheet, I don't usually care about that. I use the contact to judge composition and judge the negative directly for sharpness.
    Have you thought about getting a Paterson contact printing frame for 35mm, which will allow you to print 6 strips of 6 on a sheet of 10 X 8?

    When shopping for my first camera (my beloved F2AS), I overheard an individual in the store declare (rather loudly) to a salesperson in the store that ALL photographs were either vertical or horizontal. This same individual subsequently repeated the same comment to yours truly as my purchase was being rung up. Shooting 35mm for several years, the proposition seemed obvious. When I moved up to shooting with the Hasselblad, however, I recalled the comment, thought about it for a moment, and decided to challenge it when I shot 6x6. To this day - some 25 years later - I have yet to crop when printing my medium format work. Part of it, I think, is the challenge of filling the square format; part is just a liking/discipline of the square format/full-frame shooting (i.e. I force myself to exercise greater care when composing); and the greater part, I am quite certain, is a subconscious (?) defiance of that certain loud-mouth in a that camera store so many years ago...

    "Don't underexpose your film"
    Not a chance, I shoot almost all my 35mm work pushed 2 stops, and it's beautiful. Tri-X at 1600 or 3200 with a Red 25 is gorgeous.

    "Don't handhold a Pentax 6x7"
    Pft, that's why they exist, and why I don't use a Mamiya.

    Many people who want to bestow some impromptu advice to me on the street about my work are usually armchair photographers who have no idea about it.

    Best one ever:

    "It's useless to handhold a Hasselblad for night photography"
    Not when you've got a knack for pushing Tri-X up the whazoo, and using Delta 3200, it's not.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    You need to move up to large format.

    Just use one film and one developer. As noted above, why? They make a variety because not one will work for everything. And these days, why standardize on just one and know just one when there's always a chance of it going away? One of the advantages of film is that with one camera you can use several different types of sensitized recorders.

    And the cameras themselves come in a wonderful variety, for the same reason. And how would you know what "the one"" is if you don't give more than one a try?
