    Hi All

    I am making a 7x17 out of a wrecked Agfa Commercial View (Pics Posted in "Pix of your home-built cams" I know that over the years there have been many different standards in Back and Holder measurements. I read somewhere (forgive me for not remembering where) that modern ULF camera's are becoming standardized. Has anyone experience in building Backs and Holders? What are the current standards for 7x17? any help will be gratefully received.

    Thanks
    Brian

    Brian, you should PM Sandy King. His company makes the S&S film holders and he should be able to give you some spec's.
