    Roger, glad to hear that I'm in good company! Do you know much about these cameras? My father was given this one when he left his first employer (he was a scientific instrument maker, served his apprenticeship there and went on to be a senior manager before leaving to set up his own company). I don't know much about the camera's age, history, possible accessories, etc.

    Any information would be of interest.

    Thanks

    I know its probably a long shot that I'd be able to actually get some of these plates but... The website does list the plates but that's all.
    Is the way to check on the price and shipping via the telephone?
    Could someone here give me some idea of these plates cost?
    Without a "special" order, they come only in 9x12cm size?
    Do they seem to survive the shipping experience well?
    thank you!

    Retro Photographic had some 9x12 plates, and may still have some left. I bought my plates from them, not from Slavich.

    I think we need "local" help here - Eumenius, are you here?

    There are no known makers of glass plates worldwide other than Slavich in Russia. Most photographers who use plate cameras either adapt to film, or learn to coat their own plates. The market for glass plates is so small, that is why you don't see any US sellers. Freestyle carries Slavich photo paper, so if any plates from Slavich were imported into the USA it would probably be from them. The price would be quite high, I would expect, as this is not really a high-volume mass produced product. Would you pay $10 per plate? (just a guess).

    Agfa Gevaert in Belgium still make glass plates. I believe they are mostly used in science experiments. They are APX 100. From memory they sell for about $100 for a box of 10 plates 6.5x9 cm. Kodak are definitely still making plates as well, although I heard that is just special orders for astronomical photographers & other scientific types.
