    They are used to hold film in plafe holders, they will fit in most 3 1/4 * 4 1/4 plate holders.

    I'm familiar with the 9x12cm folding cameras with their plate holders using film sheaths for modern use. Was there an analogous line of small folding fixed lens cameras made using the 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 size? Or were most old 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 plate cameras larger wooden designs?

    Graflex made SLRs and speed graphics in this size.
