    Get and use the one that's appropriate for the size of ambrotype you want to make.
    Thank you Dan, if both of them are comparatively equal, I think I will get I-37, Im interested about 8x10 format.

    I have, just didn't realize he was talking LF, the Industar-51 I am most familiar with is the LTM series.
    Live and learn.
    Thanks
