    In a small lot of 8x10 holders I purchased, came 3 holders that are about 7"x9" I am clueless as to what format they are for. If this size is recognizable to anyone and you're jumping up and down saying "gimme gimme gimme" I'll give 'em to you.

    Are they perhaps 6 1/2" x 81/2" holders? I have no need for them, yet.

    Most likely correct, they're almost certainly "full plate" holders, and finding film to fit them might be an adventure, at least in the USA. I'd bet Retro Photographic in UK would have film in that size, though, just the way J&C Photo here carries centimeter size films and inch size sheet film smaller than 4x5...

    Gimme, gimme, gimme if they are 6.5 x8.5 holders. I'm building a full-plate camera.

    If they should happen to be 18x24cm, I'll be happy to take them :smile:
