Thank you. See my note to you about the trip.
Would you post a photo (or send me one) of your full plate camera? I'd really like to see it. That's a nice size, not too big, not too small. You can do some negatives and make nice Albumen prints with that size. My camera weighs 50 pounds (11x14) and I use a period lens (c.1864) Jamin-Darlot. It's great for the studio, but it almost killed me when I took it on the road. Check it out:
I also have two period French cameras that I've shot once (too much $ to use them on a regular basis) and really love. The darkslide mechanism is so sweet on the French cameras. I like the lenses a lot too.
