    I have a pinhole camera and i want to know which safelight i should get. I just want to go in a dark closet to see the pictures i took on the film. I also want to know if i can take the film out of the canister and cut it to fit inside the pinhole camera.

    Here is the link to the safelight:

    Safelights are for paper, not for film. Film should only be handled in complete
    darkness. And, images on film are only visible after they have been chemically
    processed.

    There is such a thing as a film safelight but it is difficult to find and not
    recommended for anyone other than an experienced lab worker who knows
    how to use it. They are very rarely used and would not work for what you
    say you want to do anyway.
