    I have a "L" shaped pc. of aluminum that my pro shop milled for me, it has a 1"step so that when I eventually attach it to my cutter all I need to do is cut and spin then cut again.I say eventually because I picked up a 5x7 field camera and just haven't gotten back to my 2x3 yet. Oh BTW there is a tool that will notch the corner of your cut film for you just like the factory sheets. Mine looks just like a single hole punch but has a corner stop and only nips a half hole from the edge of the film. Don't know who makes it mine is just stamped "JAPAN".

    All Zeiss plate cameras in that size use 6.5x9cm
    To my knowledge there is really no such thing as 6x9 sheet film
    Most holders need a film insert and these were also available in 2.25x3.25" for the American market.
    Most importantly the IDEAL requires a special holder-the ones for say a Maximar will not fit

    We've been through this with many customers who ordered 2x3 for what they called 6x9 cameras when they should have ordered the 6.5x9 size instead.

    I also do not know of any sheet film that is 6x9. The confusion I believe arises out of both 6.5x9 and 2x3 being generically referred to as 6x9.

    Ok, stupid question -- will I need to cut/adjust it?

    Are you sure that the Ica Ideal takes 6x9cm film, and that it isn't 6.5x9?

    Im a bonehead, sorry. I meant 9x12.

    Doh!

    My bad. I meant 9x12.

    I had just bid on a 6x9 Agfa when I posted that message and got my films confused.

    9x12.

    I see you guys have it on the website, but are out of stock, which is understandable given that there are probably about 10 people in the world using it, and all of us with Ideals bought off eBay for a song. =)

    There are quite a few more - maybe 10 people in the US, and maybe 1000 in Germany! Until very recently, 4x5" film was relatively unknown in (continental) Europe and 9x12cm was used instead. I use quite a lot of 9x12cm, both in my Voigtländer Bergheil and my (4x5") Linhof Color. Then again I also use 13x18cm and 18x24cm, as well as 4x5" and 5x7"...

    I don't understand why you would buy 9x12 from us so you could cut it in half to get 6x9 cm when your camera uses 6.5x9cm film which you can buy already cut to that size. Cutting 9x12 in half will not work even if you have 2x3 film adapters since 6x9cm does not equal 2.25x3.25 inches (2x3).
