After a long waiting period of about six months finally my new
wet plate camera has arrived.
With this camera i am able to produce ambrotypes up to 20 x 20 inch !!
This camera was made in Bulgaria by Andrev Donchev.
For me it was a bit of a gamble because i bought it only from drawings,
but i must say : i am really impressed !!
This camera is a state of art. Very well build and every movement is geared.
Just the packaging alone must have taken hours to make. just fantastic.
Soon we will also post a movie of the unpacking and demo of this camera.
Now the hard work begins as i have to build a larger silver bath, buy larger trays etc etc.
some details :
complete packaging 76 kg
camera it self without wet plate back 38 kg
max extention aprox 60 inch (1.5 meter)
lens plate 28.5 cm
max plate size 20 x 20 inch (aprox 51 x51 cm)
Following pictures were taken with a sony video camera by Ad van den Beemt.
