I always have been fascinated by photography.
But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me.
So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography.
Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process.

This brought me back to the middle of the 19th century, to the amazing Collodion wet plate process.
And every single day I feel challenged to refine and improve myself.

Several Petzval lenses for sale

Some of you might already know, I am downgrading my collection of wet plate gear.
Over the years I have collected quite some wet plate stuff.
But I have decided to sell most of it as I always use the same lenses and same camera.
So it's Time to let them go and have them used by others.

All 4 lenses are nearly the same size, 21-22cm in hight 
and rear lens part is about 9-9.5cm in diameter


Hermagis convertible Petzval Lens
Comes with Original Flange
300mm F 4.8
early serial number 9339
Nice sharp petzval ( I prefer to use Hermagis)
previous owner opened the back part with quite some force,
using "heavy" tools.
So the back glass has some chips of and look quite beaten of.
BUT, the projection on the ground glass looks just great.
Crispy as every hermagis.
And if you don't know you will never notice it as this part will be inside the camera.... :)

Asking price: SOLD!!!!
