Hello
I have just purchased some strips of infrared film from Dean Bennici. They are about 40mm wide, but I want to slit them down to 35mm, to use in my SLR.
It doesn't matter about sprockets.
Does anyone know how to build a slitter for this, or would anyone in the UK be willing to do it for me.

Thanks

Could it be spooled onto 127 rolls?
Get a baby Rollei or something

I already have a baby Rolleiflex, and will be shooting some in it.
However, I have 20+ strips of this, and would love to use some for 35mm.
I have a modified A-1, which used to shoot rolls of unperforated, cheaper 35mm, but now works with any 35mm wide stock.

i have heard about submini film slitters, and am wondering if such a thing could be made for this.

Thanks again

I've loaded 35mm onto an rb67, giving a pano feel, that exposes the sprocket holes as well, looks very cool, and gives a similar look (albeit sharp) to the sprocket rocket from lomo. Perhaps if you have a medium format, you can do the same. there's a tutorial on youtube,as well as various online, that tells you how to do it, so as to not waste any film, with the leader.

About a year ago a fellow apugger sent me a free Konica Autoreflex T body which had been modofied to take usprocketed 35mm film. I sent it to Greg Weber for a complete overhaul and I have yet to use it. When I wasn't interested in unsprocketed film it was everywhere. Now it's not so easy to find. The camera should still work with sprocketed film.
