    Chroma Wet Plate Holders - Standard/custom sizes

    I wanted to post a quick update to say that I’ve now added new wet plate holders to my shop. Currently, I have listed a range of standard sized holders, but am more than happy to discuss any custom sizes required. I design/print all of the holders myself, so ensure consistent quality throughout.

    All of my holders use the same magnetic lid and retained dark slide design. This simplifies their overall design, and usage, and also keeps their thickness down to 11-13mm (depending on model), so should fit under any ground glass.

    But what material are they made of?? If 3D printed, PLA should be avoided because it deforms too easily in warm conditions. I hope you're not using PLA.

    Thanks for your patience, and your order. I've got a case open with my ISP to upgrade the backend of my hosting which should resolve the performance issues.

    Re: Chroma Wet Plate Holders - Standard/custom sizes

    Got a 5X7 Wet Plate holder from Chroma Camera today

    I like the captive dark slide, the all plastic materials, the 2 magnet loading side cover

    Should be easy to clean, if done asap, as shown by my teachers

    I really like the very simple design, but will need to get Exact 5x7 tins or glass plates to use it

    I have 200 under sized 5X7 glass plates that fall through...

    My mistake, as I ordered the too small glass 6 years ago for dry plate emulsions, not knowing plate sizes, they do fit my old wood dry plate holders

    I can also cut my glass to fit 4X5 or smaller and will

    Today I email my source for a new quote

    Tonight I will check clearances with very old NOS 5X7 dry plates and shoot one to check light fastness
    wear mask or NOT

    Shot one dry plate in my new to me Chroma Camera WET Plate holder

    I really like the new holder. It works very well

    It does need plate dimensions very close to 5X7

    My existing plates are 4.95 X 6.95" and are too loose with a side always falling in

    I ordered those 6 years ago for a Dry Plate project

    Here is a LFPF link to the DRY PLATE image
