    I've considered getting one of those Kodak Brownie 3a cameras. They cost about $110 now. He mentions apron. I have one, used it once. I just wear old black jeans and an old brown t-shirt.

    How about a Brownie 3B? You saw the collodion negatives I made with a 3B two days ago, yes? Not a bad camera for general purpose applications.

    PS: Borut Peterlin is one of the best practitioners of the wet plate process in the world today. He knows his stuff, and I like his artistic sensibilities. The fact that he is making 16 X 20 glass negatives fills me with joy (and a little bit of envy!).
    PPS: just don't follow his example of boiling the silver bath to perform maintenance on it: this is a bad idea. Google Silver fulminate:

    Re: Wet Plate Videos

    Here is a new last night Topshit which I found very interesting

    and no I will not be posting all 93 and counting video links

    He has great verbal delivery with visual tricks and reality

    I wish I made videos as good....and I think he reedited it last night and cut a few minutes off, 620 views in 10 hours

    Thank you, Borut Peterlin
