645 Proofsheets?

Discussion in 'Darkroom Developing and Printing' started by Paul Schoenfeld, Sep 2, 2003.

  1. Hello all,

    After finally setting up my darkroom and dusting off my old Paterson
    proofers, a 35mm and a 2-1/4, I realize the 2-1/4 is set up for four
    strips of three instead of three strips of five.

    Any suggestions?

  2. Paul,

    For proofing many meduim format films you should buy paper in 8 1/2 11"
    size. Any cobination will fit. Actually 35mm in 36 exposure fits easily.

    Mitsubishi makes it. I get mine from PMA in Rochester. Chech B&H catalog
    as I suspect others make it in this size. With a three hole punch your
    proofs will fit in a standard notebook too.

    cut into 3 strips of 5 negs (buy neg sleeves to suit), 8x10 paper and a
    piece of glass.

    I file my negatives in transparent US "PRINT FILE" brand sleeves. To proof
    I leave them in the sleeves, put them on top of some printing paper under
    the enlarger and hold in place with a sheet of glass.

    this gives perfect proofs without taking the negs out of the sleeves with
    the risk of damaging them or getting dust on. medium format goes on a sheet
    of 8"x10" paper but 35mm negs need 9 1/2"x12" paper. Also very quick to do
    multiple films.
