Re: [Rollei] cutting gelatin filters

The recommended way to do this (Kodak filter handbook) is to place the filter between a folded piece of fairly stiff, clean paper on which you have marked the shape you want, then cut the whole thing with a sharp pair of scissors.

Gel filters are prone to cracking and shattering along the edges.  This method supports the material while the cut is taking place.

That said, I have made many straight cuts with a good rototrim cutter.
