    Re: 4X5 FOOT Simple Camera

    Drew,

    Wet plate all done in a tiny tent may be a bad idea

    Not my plan

    Right now looking at gear for 14X36" contact prints

    Which requires complete special kit of all things

    Remember the last guy to do it?

    The film/paper are still available

    I have hand processed 20 sheets of 14X36"

    Glass for the contact frame is not that expensive delivered

    Thinking about a handcart, that can roll into my pickup....a covered wagon...

    TC: sounds like you have a plan. . .go for it!

    Little tent and wet plates . . .actually, I was thinking of the camera-in-a-trailer concept, where the interior of the camera was a room sized space

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I may be selling my Darkroom Trailer as camper locally

    I ventilate it with a metal rooftop RV fan

    and was going to make a light trap for that, I have dark slides for the side window screens

    but trailers like mine are in high demand NOW
