    I never had the problem with 7x17. I was always able to get correctly sized film from Z&Z. At the moment Iwould have to go to the film freezerinte garage to tell you which film it was.

    Didn't I buy the Korona 7X17 from you? With one OE Korona 7X17 holder.

    Can't remember. _______________Yes, I did as I just learned from thread research.

    I now have three 7X17 holders.

    But the X-Ray does not fit in one or two holders.

    At the same time bought 2 'S&S' 7X17 holders I think those are Korona copies off eBay

    Which doesn't matter to me as I just slice the X-Ray film to fit, but it's been a while...

    I just got them out, they are loaded with film and I don't want to check anything.

    I do remember I had this discussion before on this forum.

    Old posts.

    No, I sold the camera to another person on this forum. The three original holders worked well with the film, as did my S&S holders which were claimed by a friend.
    What kind of cutter do you use to slice off small pieces of film? I'm tired of he razor blade.

    I think you sold your friend's camera to me and later sold yours to somebody else.

    I am often wrong!

    I was Randy Moe, but changed my LFPF name for a number of reasons.

    I now cut 14X17" Ektascan down with a dedicated Dahle cutter, Never use it for paper, only film.

    Dahle 18e VantageŽ Trimmer is affordable and has a very gentle automatic 'holder downer' feature made of flexible rubber/plastic. It also saves fingers.

    I have a smaller one for smaller format.

    It's not perfect and does sometimes pull a little, but it's far better than my 24" Rota Trim at cutting film.

    I bought mine on Amazon some years ago, note the price. https://www.amazon.com/Dahle-Automat...gateway&sr=8-3

    I won't receive the so-called 5x7 film until next week (it is being shipped from a warehouse in New Hampshire?!?) but I went ahead and bought a few NOS 13x18cm Lisco holders that should allow me to make good use of it if it is indeed larger than standard 5x7 film. I can also use them for cutting down my remaining stock of 8x10 to fit.

    +1 for this cutter. Often listed used on fleaBay for a substantial discount.

    I received my 100 sheet box of "5x7" film today, and sure enough it is explicitly marked as 13x18cm on the box.

    13x18cm holders aren't that difficult to find (especially in Europe, of course)!

    I've been using the Bill Atkinson / Outback Print color test image for years to dial in color on my printer.

    It would be great to have a reference for what green sensitive film can actually see. I don't have any green sensitive x-ray film right now, but maybe someone who does could take a picture of a color test image to compare?
    Northlight has a whole page of test images to work from, so I'm sure there's something we could all download in order to compare.
