    if you look at the image showing the owners manual (white thing that says Ideal Cameras) you can see a list of sizes and where the original owner of the camera has underlined, in pencil, 6.5 by 9 -- so that's what this one is. He had the film processed at a store in Salt Lake City that no longer exists. Also included is an envelope full of the film pack tabs that the guy got back from one roll/pack of film he shot in the camera.

    Sure wish I had some of the negatives he shot.

    I measure the holder openings to be 1/4 plate or 3-1/4X4-1/4. The holders have excellent felt and are made for plate and supplied with film sheaths. 3 is plenty for how I will use this jewel.

    My unexposed 1967 3x4 Tri-X Film pack fit the supplied film pack holder.

    This thing is gorgeous and complete!

    It is beyond museum quality.

    I truly love this camera and it is like a cousin to my Prewar Linhof Technika Standard 5X7. Same type body. Exquisite construction. I will shoot it.

    Thank you so much!

    Image shot with old dry plate, maybe as old as camera

    By new owner.

    It is for sure 1/4 plate!

    That's great! Is it a print or did you scan the plate? (I've had a really hard time getting a good print through the fog when I've shot on old plates, but I'm not a very experienced printer.)
