    Was there ever made a Gandolfi camera that used the thin metal single side plate holders?
    A seller has describe one as having a wooden back that takes thin metal holders. Doesn't sound right to me but that's why I'm asking.

    thank you!

    Contact the company, the current owner does restorations son woold know.

    Some pre-WWII cameras did take metal plate holders similar to the German 9x12's etc usually Quarter plate, so it's quite possible.
