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.

What cameras, aside from Fuji, are 6x8 ?

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.

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.
