One thing that really struck me, aside from the size of the camera, is how good he is at pouring such large plates. They're nearly flawless!

well... watch the video... :whistling: he gets more than a little upset at himself when some plates don't go as planned.

Insane. Some of his plates are nearly perfect, some are interestingly flawed, and a couple are just flawed:

I guess they would qualify as tintypes, since it's a negative image on a black background, which makes it look like a positive.

Huge amount of chutzpah, some truly great images therein, and yay for the mad scientist ethos!

Impressive. I couldn't get the video to work at first, and only saw the picture. I was guessing he had to use a spray gun to coat the glass (paint gun)
An impressive feat, and an expensive one.

It looks like he pours the chemicals on, no spray gun. Interesting.
