    RobertP-

    I have shot black glass ambros in a #2 Box Brownie (approx 1/4 plate size - 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 or thereabouts). They fit just fine. Brownies were far from precision equipment, and they had plenty of play. In fact, the #2 that I use has a pair of big springs to keep the film flat, which work great for keeping the glass in place.

    However they have convinced me that it's possible, which is what the OP was asking, with no modifications to the camera.

    I just epoxied some aluminum corners onto the back to keep the plate at the film plane, then spray painted it matte black. You should probably cover the ruby window just in case.

    Tins will fit. Glass won't.

    Joe, This is like the Coffer conversion. I thought he did mention that glass won't fit but I wasn't sure. Thanks Robert
