On 4x5 filmholders there is a standardized distance between the film and the "edge" of the filmholder. If I dont remember incorrectly this distance is 4,8 mm something very small.

I wonder if the filmholders of other formats (8x10, 11x14, 12x16 etc...) have the same distance as the 4x5 filmholder, or if there are other measurements on these holders. Actually all dimensions on these filmholders would be of interest. Im working on some home-built ULF projects, and I am going to make my own filmholders, but I want my cameras to work with other filmholders as well.

I am not sure if this question is understandable, my english is rather poor... Any help here would be apreciated.
