bummer about the 4x5....a few more questions....Is going to 8x10 a big step from no knowledge?...and can collodion be self-taught, or am I going to have to go on a course?...need to find if I can get the ready to use chemicals here in Europe, since the issue I have at home is that my wife just doesn't trust all the mixing etc (she thinks I will screw it up and blow up the house!).

Also, what happens whith the liquid run-off from the holders, will I experience the chemicals leaking and do I have to protect the Camera in some way....I may go for 8x10 (and one of your holders), just need to resolve some issues.

Rgds, K
