    Hello! Anybody can help me? I need the dimensions of the paper that protects the photographic film 127. I need down 120 to 127. I need the dimension of separation between numbers, starting with charge indicator, 1 number, to stop, at the end of tail. I also could use a 1:1 scale PDF. thanks

    46mm wide.
    A quick Google search renders dozens of threads on the subject.

    Hello! after looking I found the following:

    Film: 46mm x 61cm
    Paper: 48mm x 108 cm

    What I do not know:

    Distance between the beginning and start the arrows.
    Distance between the arrows start and the first number.
    The distance between the numbers.

    Thanks

    The 127 camera can shoot a 4.5 by 6 negaive (8 shots) or a 4.5 by 4.5 negative (12 shots). The spacing should be the same as on the 12 and 16 exposure numbers on 120 backing paper.

    There was an old ANSI standard for such things. Sorry, but I don't have a number for it.
