    Dear Vince,

    So pleased you enjoyed Mike Bains presentation....

    35mm remains ( by far ) the highest volume sales by m2.

    We love all formats......

    Every photograph taken should be judged only on its merits as a photograph not the film format or camera it is imaged on.....in my humble opinion.....

    They knew the value of preparation and time. We seem to be in such a hurry to get something done we miss the subtle things that make a photograph work. Then again preparing a glass plate must have been quite a job in the field.

    Simon, with all the scientific glass plate products you offer, how possible would it be for you to offer them for conventional dry plate photography? Of course it would be a very small market.

    Dear pbromaghin,

    Its not commercially viable for the market, we produce plates that are typically small such as 1" x 3" as soon as the size increases the waste factors to produce 'A' quality plates rise significantly and the price would become untenable except to a tiny proportion to end users.

    Sorry

    Simon,

    This is off topic, but I'm really curious:
    What is the advantage of a 1" x 3" plate over film? Why do these applications use such a small plate instead of a larger film surface?

    The scientific coatings that we do are used in 'hostile' environments such as the nuclear industry, materials testing etc and where optical glass is required as film base would not be capable of recording defined images:
