    Hello,

    Anyone out there happen to have the outside dimensions for a standard 5x7 film
    holder?- Length and Width. I'm reverse engineering a quick 5x7 box camera and thought I'd get started on it the while I wait for a film holder I ordered online
    to arrive.. Thanks

    If I interpret the 1951 ANSI information correctly, the exposure height for 5x7 holders should be 6.579 inches, not 7.01 inches as listed in the above link.
