    I would buy six of the whole plate film holders. And then maybe a few more after that.

    dumb question here??

    OK so someone tell me that in order to use these holders I will need a specialized
    view camera to use them?? Or to have a camera back modified by Richard Ritter
    Would it not be possible to be able to have the holders fit into the sliding back of my current 8x10? ;or am I asking too much?? I mean these cameras don't exist so why is everyone ordering holders? I would love to try the format myself
    So somebody please respond.
    Thanks, Peter

    If you just want to try the format dimensions out, mark your 8x10 ground glass with a pencil and then chop your negative after you develop it. That is what I did for a while before diving in. There are a decent number of old whole plate cameras still floating about, but most will be pre-1925, with the occasional exception like Oren's Rittreck camera.

    fukk plate inquiry

    Clay-thanks for the info. I guess the lack of or whatever answers the question.
    So everyone who is buying these holders has one of these cameras?? Or are you going to start modifying 5x7's and 8x10's?? Just VERY curious
    Thanks, Peter

    I'll be putting a 6x8 back on my Century Master studio camera. The camera was made to take modular backs up to 8x10. Whole-plate cameas do show up on the 'bay from time to time. Not nearly as exotic as 7x11.

    Peter, there are plenty of whole plate cameras floating around. If a bunch of new whole plate holders went on sale today, almost certainly most purchasers would be owners of antique cameras, simply because there are far more of those around than there are new cameras or custom-built adapter backs.

    The important thing is that if you're interested in the format, there are many ways to end up with a working camera, to suit a wide range of budgets and preferences.
