Hi All, after seeing the documentary "genius of photography" i became interested on trying in the alternative processes like Daguerrotypes and colodion, although Daguerreotypes which requires pure silver might be to expensive and advance for me that made the collodion and tintype more interesting. what i gather is i need a large format camera and the chemicals. the chemicals i can search and there's the how to articles on http://www.alternativephotography.com now for the camera, maybe someone knowledgeable with the process can guide me on the right camera with my small budgets of maybe around US$300 for the camera and all its accessories (lens, holder, etc). and i'm hoping for at least 8x10 size, as i'm more interested on positive image. thanks all.
