    Classifieds??

    Hi! So I'm jumping into large format and figured might as well go all out so I'm jumping straight into wet plate. But I'm looking for a good place other than auction site to find a trusty used 4x5 or 5x7 but I can't find a classified section here. Is there anywhere else you recommend I look???

    Per Forum guidelines, you will have access to our FS and WTB sections after you have been a member for 30 days.

    Besides here there is also APUG's (Analog Photographer's Users Group) classified section. They have the same rules as us about being a member for a month so you might want to join right away. A lot of the times they have the same cameras for sale too due to people like me who are members to both forums.

    Welcome to the forum. We are glad to have you!

    Can someone help a guy eager to start in wet plate? Waiting 30 days can be excruciating.... Have any of us done it recently? :-)

    Thanks! Yeah I checked out and am a member of apug but didn't find any. There was a nice tachi but slightly outside my price range.

    That Tachi was a bargain but it's now sold anyway. Too purty to do wet plate with though!

    Yeah it was too nice to mess up I think haha. I don't mind paying that much but not an ideal candidate for my first camera.

    So right now I've got 3 I'm watching as potential candidates. All clean but no lenses:

    1) linhof 45s kardan
    2) burke and james 4x5 view camera with extra rail and 3 lens boards and 2 film backs
    3) graflex graphic view with no rail mount

    Not in any particular order

    Should be able to find a cheap speed graphic with focal plane shutter on eBay. Cheap barrel lenses as well. The speed graphics work just fine for wet plate
