    Perhaps an addition to the front of the holder to move the dark slide forward a bit. That would thicken the holder and necessitate relocating the ground glass again. A big advantage to a custom back is you wouldn't have to modify the camera or a holder, so you preserve the option to shoot 12x20 film/dry plates/paper negatives in the future. Also, most custom backs will accomodate a variety of plate sizes, so you could have it built to take 12x20, 8x20, 12x16...

    And yeah, it's tough waiting for a new camera, especially something as epic as a 12x20.

    Thanks again mark. Will have to wait and see what needs to be done. All valid thinking points. Cheers.
    Yes very excited to get this camera up and running. I hate the wait!

    Re: Converting Korona film holders to plate holders

    Seems I may be in luck. Conversing with another member here who got in touch and told me about his Korona plate holders.

    Seems that one of the 'film holders' I have may actually be a plate holder that had a film holder adapter made for it, in the form of a removable metal septum with the sides folded over that is inserted into where the glass plate normally would be.

    If this is the case, I might be in luck... I'm just hopeful that the 'plate holder' can accept 3mm thick glass...
