    Lane "Speed" Plates

    I loaded up two of the new Lane ISO 25 speed plates and gave them a try. Camera was my trusty Chamonix 045n, lens was a 6 in. B&L rapid rectilinear in Uncum shutter. I processed these in my SP-445 with the plate holders. I was a little anxious about it and went easy on the agitation. The plates came out great! I'll shoot a few with my other lenses c.1905-1920.

    I like them, but prefer the earlier slower plates for some of my lense which are w/o shutters or aperture control.

    I'm still using the ISO 2 plates with my pre-Civil War lenses, and am trying the new ISO 25 with my lenses 1900-1925. Will be shooting Civil War re-enactors this coming weekend using 5x7 plates and c.1850s Petzval, c.1840s doublet.

    Looking good, Kent.

    Nice, Kent. I haven’t gotten a lot of feedback yet from other folks about the plates so I’m happy to see the results!

    They did meter at ISO 25 for me. And no loss of emulsion during processing.

    I've just shoot a couple of quarter plate and a couple of 3A 25 ASA dry plates (J.Lane, of course) and look great. Both 2 ASA and 25 ASA are wonderful, and more interesting depending on the kind of camera, shutter (or lack of) and subject. With my Goerz Ango I can even shoot dry plates at 1/50 or maybe even 1/100!! Action shots, like Ottomar Anschütz did!

    This is a "fast" dry plate scene, with the 1/4 plate Goerz Ango:
