    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... 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!
    Using film since before it was hip.

    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.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
