    i hate cutting negatives ... 6x6, 6x9, 1/2 frame, 35mm
    its a pain .. but i use old scissors stolen from my mothers sewing basket
    and a newer pair of scissors i found a few years ago they just ended up in the darkrom.
    i just hold the film to the light, and cut .. its not really rocket science .. and if i screw-up, oh well ..
    thats a great reason for shooting sheet film, you don't have to cut the negatives, unless you are
    shooting split frame ...

    I leave the cutting to the missus, my hands are too big for that kind of stuff.

    My memory is fine also, but where I have a problem is with recall.

    I just recalled something pertinent to this thread. Way back when I was shooting 35mm, I noticed that the frames sometimes had a narrower space between them than other frames, making it more difficult to cut the strips. I finally discovered that the narrow spaces occurred when adjacent frames were made using wide angle lens, and longer lenses left wider spaces. The camera's "mask" in front of the film was a constant width and a finite distance from the film. When a wide angle lens was used, being closer to the film, it projected a wider image onto the film (wider than the mask).
