    Or 15 shots. The older Pentax 645 is 15 IIRC. The newer models 16.

    Yes, 6x17 is 4.

    Tom Sauerwein shoots 6x8, so he'll know that one.

    Fuji made a 6x8 rangefinder as well as the GX680 SLR.

    Mamiya makes a motorized 6x8 back for the RB that can also be used on the Alpa. It gets 9 exposures.

    There is also 4cmx4cm (really 3.8x3.8) superslide format giving 16 images on 120 film

    And the original Diana camera box I'm staring at says it "takes 16 colour or black/white images with 120 roll film." These images are also 4cm x 4cm.

    I shoot with the Fuji GX680 and I get 9 shots per 120 roll.

    The Russian Horizon 205pc is 5.5x11cm, at least according to the seller Web site I just referenced. Maybe they're just measuring it differently and that's the 6x12 format that's already been mentioned, though. (I don't have one of these cameras, so I can't offer any personal observations.) Unless I missed it, the site doesn't say how many exposures to expect per roll.
