Hi Everyone,

This is my first post on the forum and I am relatively new to Wet Plate Collodion. I have just purchased a beautiful 12x10 Ross Camera. I have to say I'm overjoyed with it. My intention is to use it for Wet Plate Collodion photography. However, the plate holders that came with the camera are set up for the dry plate process. They are in such fantastic original condition (as is the whole camera) that I do not want to convert them to a wet plate. Therefore I would love help sourcing someone that can custom make me some wet plate holders with step-down inserts and additionally a couple of lens boards. I'm based in the UK.

Thanks in advance.

don't count on them fitting your camera though....you're better of contacting Richard Ritter who can either convert the back for those holders or make you holders for the camera...good luck

Chroma makes custom size holders and will fit your camera if you give him dimensions. I wouldn’t worry too much about that.
