    One of the hazards of this kind of discussion is that people extrapolate from what you say to argue against things you didn't say and didn't mean. Yes, I make that mistake too sometimes.

    Modern 4 x 5 plastic film holders generally record an actual image area of about 96 x 120 mm. You can check that against the size of your ground glass.
