    Questions about contact prints and filing for 6x7 negs

    Just stepped down from 4x5 and have already purchased a RB67. I know this question has been asked a lot of times by now, but I just have a few more questions to clear up any confusion that I have...

    1. From what I read, 10 shots of 6x7 will only fit on a 8.5x10 paper?

    2. For filing negs in plastic sleeve, I read that you cut the negs into 3 strips of 3 and use extra wide filing pages? If so, then I will get 3 strips of 3 and 1 strip of 1?

    3. I was thinking about just wasting the first frame on purpose so I only get 9 shots and they will fit perfectly on a 8x10 and those sideways filing pages. What would you say about this?

    The filing pages that have the channels running vertically will hold the 3 strips of 3 negatives in a standard size binder. Here is a listing for the Print File product: http://www.pfile.com/product/1203hb1...ive-Preservers

    If you intentionally waste a shot, that will be the roll that has one blank negative anyways.

    I think everyone struggles a little bit with the extra negative situation. It sure makes 6x8 look good!

    1) I guess so, but I don't contact print. I haven't done the exact math and checked it with the frame spacing but it looks like you could maybe fit 2 rolls as 4 rows (10") of 5 frames (14") onto a 11x14" sheet. You can fit 2.5 rolls onto a 12x16" page easily (5 rows of 5, landscape)
    2) yep, you can get PrintFile sleeves that will take 3 of 6x7 frames in a single row, in four rows. Personally I'm a hacky bastard so I actually cut into strips of two (that's the max length that will fit my scanner) and stack up a whole roll into each slot in the page (except for chromes where I do the normal thing). Fits 4 rolls/page and I expect it to be relatively archival since that's how film is stored when spooled; you need to be sure it's absolutely dry though to prevent sticking and damage.
    3) Philistine.

    This might work for you http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ge_Ultima.html
    3 strips of 4 frames so you can do 3,3,4.

    My problem with the tenth shot is I bracket one shot above and one shot below the meter calculation. So that leaves me the tenth shot without bracketing.

    Sorry I don't think that will work for 6x7's. But I do have somewhere in my house plastic sleeves that do bought quite a while ago. I'll have to find them.
