  1. Re: Exposure 40 min, f/5,6 in wet plate collodion process?

    Apparently reciprocity isn't that much of a factor with wet plate. I once made a 10 minute exposure in cool damp weather, and placed a wet sponge inside my bellows near the tin.

  8. Re: What do I need to do to use a R.O.&C. Co Telephoto Cycle Poco D ?

    What you are thinking of are called sheaths, not inserts. If your holders are for dry plates, you will need to either find some 5x7 film sheaths on ebay etc. or simply stick something about the same...
  9. Re: What do I need to do to use a R.O.&C. Co Telephoto Cycle Poco D ?

    This probably takes a standard 5x7 holder. If so, you are in luck. You will also need an incident light meter and a reasonably sturdy tripod. And, a focus magnifier (called a "loupe"). For a dark...
