    I thought it would be a good idea to at least define what "wet plate" photography actually is! Glad you found it useful. Thanks.

    Different names arose for different variants of the wet plate process: Tintypes are positive images on sheet metal, Ambrotypes are positives on glass. Negatives on glass are simply collodion negatives. A "Ferrotype" is the same thing as a tintype, but specifically refers to a tintype made on thin steel, blackened with Japan black varnish
    Fantastic answer. That really clears things up for me. This has the makings of a great sub forum.
