    Film cutting (re: Quang-Tuan Luong response)

    Quang-Tuan, thank you for the information. I am considering cutting larger negatives to the 5 x 7 size also. Do you use a paper trimmer such as the Rototrim or Dahle? Is cleaning off cutting debris (film chips) an issue? I'm hoping that normal dust-off procedures as is typical with film holder loading will be sufficient.

    Thanks again, Oliver

    Film cutting (re: Quang-Tuan Luong response)

    Based on Kerry Thalman's advice (who said not to bother with any other cutting device), I bought a Rotatrim. I cuts perfectly. The only thing I found was that if I tried to cut to the exact dimensions, then sometimes due to alignment problems the film would not fit into the holder. Now I cut to 1.5mm less than the nominal dimensions and i have not had that problem. Film debris is not a problem, you just wipe them off your table. I just hope I had a better use for all those 8x1 bands than bookmarks :-)
