    Whole-plate Update

    Today I picked up what's shown belowas an attachment from Rob Skeoch.

    Now all I need is that darn camera! I placed a deposit today for one regardless of the ongoing deal negotiation but Rob tells me we need 2 more orders to enjoy that significant saving. So, could TWO of you PLEASE have an epiphany and order one! I had a mini-epiphany myself when Rob showed me an ebony Ebony....oh yeah!!!!

    Isn't Toronto east of Goderich?

    I'm probably mistaken. Grin.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Yes, yes it is....but, um, I AM west of the Humber (river in Toronto) and also east of Goderich, yes, so I don't get what you are getting at? Should I be worried? Is there an onthological problem? ...anyway, now will you order this camera?

    Lol. Richard - you're probably the only person I've heard who can say 'Ebony' and 'ontology' in the same sentence.

    i'm kind of dithering about this....I think a post-Christmas dead would be better in some ways. I've not fully excluded the option, although the other options are looking more attractive.

    Too much existential angst and I haven't even started deciding on which whole plate camera.

    The good news is I sold my Sanderson whole plate camera which I hadn't got around to a working standard. It uses bookform holders and is missing lensboard/tripod base. Ole was good enough to send me a tripod base plate, but it didn't fit. I kind of gave up and sold it, otherwise I could be trying to get this camera working for the next year.

    The bad news is, the proceeds from the Sanderson won't cover the cost of a new Ebony.

    Good to see that Rob Skeoch keeps Ilford whole plate in stock for latecomers.
