    9x12 plate holders & cut film

    I recently bought a 9x12 Voigtlander Bergheil along with some plate holders. Unfortunately none of the plate holders came with film sheaths so I'm on the lookout for some.
    However I am wondering about the sizing. I also have a 6.5x9 Voigtlander where the plates are 6.5x9 but the cut film is slightly smaller. I presume this is because the film sheaths have to be a bit smaller to fit inside the plate holders.

    Is it the same with 9x12? Or to put it another way - when I do get the 9x12 film sheaths, will 9x12 cut film fit in properly?

    I have a couple of 9x12 cameras and film sheaths from at least a half dozen makers. The 9x12 film I've used from Foma and Efke has fit all of them. If you're cutting your own from larger stock, measure carefully.

    Thanks, that's good to know, because I'm buying film even before I get any sheaths. It's a long term project & I'm sure I can source a few from somewhere. I have a box of Foma & some Agfa RSX on the way.

    Ebay Germany is the best place to find film sheaths, although they do pop up from time to time on the other national sites.

    If you have any classic camera fairs over there, try and get along to them - that is where I found most of mine.
