Hi, all -
I'm making a contact printing frame for the 5x12 negatives I'm shooting, and I'm wondering if I should hinge the back. I'm not quite sure why the back is traditionally hinged. I have an old 5x7 frame I use that's hinged, and I've never used that split back once.
Do I need to split and hinge the back? Archaic feature? Lemme hear it.
