    Very impressive to me !!! I really like the old fashioned look that the picture has. If that's just a fourth attempt, I'd be inclined to say that you're waaaayy ahead of the pack.

    Kerik: "I love the smell of collodion on the morning!" I have been chuckling about that all afternoon. I think I might put it on a sign and mount it on my Darkbox.

    J.M.: I used my home made 4x5 Maple camera.

    Holder? Don't ask! I did it the hard way :rolleyes:

    I took a Lisco holder apart - always wanted to see how they were put together

    I stripped the flim holders off and cut a hole in the sceptum (right word?). I glued little triangles over the corners of the cutout to hold the face of the plate in the plane of focus and glued the Lisco back together.

    I'm working on the design for a wooden plate holder that will hold 4x5 plates, use standard dark slides, and be the same outside dimensions as a standard holder. I haven't figure out yet how to latch the back without anything sticking out to interfere with the GG frame.

    Here's the plate holder I made converting an 8x10 to 6.5x8.5. And the back. Been using it over a year now. Works a treat, as they say.
