Kodak has withdrawn 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 Tri-X Prof., Ilford has withdrawn FP4 in this size. Only HP5+ is still made in this size. Does anyone know of any other emulsions left in this size? It HP5+ the last? I still shoot about 5 boxes of film in this size / year with my good old Century Graphic. It's nice to have bellows adjustments and not have to remove the ground glass back to switch to rolls.

This is exactly the problem I wished to find an answer for. Most of my 2x3s won't accept a roll film holder. I wasn't aware that any still existed. Has anyone tried cutting another sheet film to size?

I don't own a "small" sheet film camera, but it seems to me that someone could design a jig to hold the film while cutting it to size in the darkroom. I was thinking about a rotary paper cutter with guides set in place to align 4x5 or 5x7 film.

I've done it for larger sizes, and I have to say, it's a pain. The way I do it is to set up to paper cutters that are nice and sharp. Set up a stop on one cutter for one dimention and the second dimention on the other. If you are going to lose the notches, as I sometimes have I took a high quality paper punch, and wrapped gaffer tape around the jaws so that it punches half way, ie notch.

With the scrapbooking world making new punches daily, it might be better to buy one of their corner rounders and round the upper right corner.

I recently bought Ilford FP4+ 2-1/4 X 3-1/4 from Henry's in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I bought the last of their stock, but they said that they could order more at $16.00 CANADIAN!! (about $11.00 US) for a box of 25.
Their website is henrys.com (I think)

Re: jigs, you might look on eBay. One to cut 3x4 film from 4x5 sheets just sold. You might get some ideas from it. Didn't look too high tech.

It was in either photo/darkroom, or photo/lf

2 1/4 x 3 1/4 cut film is available in the UK from "Mr Cad", a leading professional supplier in Croydon, near London. I think it comes from somewhere in East Europe and is listed as "Maco B+W cut film 100 ASA 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 30 sheets 7.23". (Something like $10.)It is good. Also 25 ASA Maco Orthochromatic cut film in this size. Mr Cad has a web site at:
http://www.mrcad.co.uk\
They will post anywhere and are good and reliable. (Also large collection of lenses in shutters for Graflex.)

p.s. The maco film works in Graflex No 5 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 film holders perfectly.

I have a 2 1/4 X 3 1/4 baby speed graphic and I have found that the old Adapt-A-Roll roll backs work with 120 and 220 roll film quite well. You should save the 620 take up roll if you send your film out for processing.

For example, could a wood block covered with construction paper be laid on the emulsion side to hold the film as it was cut?

Just be careful that you dont scrath the emultion. Fiskars makes a rotery cutter that works well use Gaphers tape to mark the cutter at 3" and at 4" and you will be fine just try to make sure that you dont cut off the noches.
