    If Romania, should one be looking for 5x4 film instead... or is that only England and Australia?

    Former Eastern block countries tended to use 9x12 as the FSU made clones of pre War & Wartime German cameras so adopted Continental European formats.

    But 5x4 and 10x8 have become more universal in recent years so there's a mix of both available.

    9x12 wasn't a British standard so cameras made for that format often took Quarter plate holders which would fit the same back, this was the case in the UK, Australia, New Zealand etc and not forgetting the US where the larger Nagel made Recomars where Quarter plate.

    Writing from Romania, where both formats are being sold by different retailers. Thats the reason for my confusion, it was not a math issue..
