    Hi Mark, Currently I construct second prototype, this time 10x12, especially suited for wet plate, with stronger front and wet plate holder. When I finish it, hope, till the end of August, I'll offer both for order. The 8x10 prototype from above, will be available for sale, after some finishing touches like name plate and ground glass protector, on a very special price.
    Thank you for your interest!
    Andrey

    Most interesting---it looks like a good functional design without extra weight or complexity. Do you have a sense of what the price range for these cameras would need to be? I don't ask for an official selling price, but should I imagine Shen-Hao prices or Ebony prices?

    My goal is simplest and lightest design possible and larger production, not high prices. I hope that i'll be able to keep it unedr 2000€ for 10x12 including wet plate holder. Will see!
