View Full Version : 11x14 Holder Fit - Ritter to Chamonix

29-Aug-2020, 06:08
Iíve always been under the impression that 11x14 is the last ďstandardizedĒ holder size.

I have a few Ritter holders and wanted to see if anyone here using a Chamonix 11x14 had any issues using their camera with non-Chamonix holders?

I have dimensions from Hugo but at this present time I only have a rough carpenters metric tape, so itís close but I canít really nail down an exact measurement with this method.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200829/e0933f4a33c2c1d15b2a32ba7f9cfac8.jpg

"Film Holders Critical Dimensions"

Chamonix seems to have no specs https://www.chamonixviewcamera.com/accessories/filmholders

I bought a new Chamonix 11X14 camera about 4 years ago after discovering by online research my Richard Ritter holders were an exact fit BEFORE I bought

When I received the new camera they fit perfectly

I sold the Chamonix later as I found I did not need such a shiny new camera, I sold it to a member here

I bought an old 11X14 and still use my RR holders

11x14 is an ANSI standard. Richard's holders have been interchangeable with the Fidelity holders I have, as well as holders I have purchased from Pierre & Filip. Older wooden holders may have been made before the standard and only fit their respective cameras; Folmer & Korona come to mind.
Call Richard and discuss with him; he is very accessible and friendly.
