    7x17 film dimension

    The size varies slightly in size depending on brand, and/or who is cutting it to size. Generally is is cut to about 6 14/16" to 6 15/16" wide, and the long dimension is usually either 17" or 16 15/16".

    Film holders of this size are usually built to a fixed opening of 7 X 17" so the film obviously needs to be cut slightly smaller to fit the holder.
