    Re: Collodion websites closed

    Quinn appears to be consolidating his various web sites, and so things are moving around. I cannot find a link to his 2019 edition at the moment.

    I use an Epson V750 for all my 8x10 negatives and it delivers outstanding results. I could print billboards from the scans.

    I'm confused by this. The question is whether or not we should be creating a distinct area to focus on the wet plate collodion process. I see no point in drawing a line to create a distinction...

    Agreed. There is FAR too much information to be shared about the process than can be comfortably fit into a single thread.
