I always have been fascinated by photography.
But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me.
So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography.
Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process.

This brought me back to the middle of the 19th century, to the amazing Collodion wet plate process.
And every single day I feel challenged to refine and improve myself.

For sale, a original collodion wet plate camera!


For sale, a original collodion wet plate camera!
Ground glass size is 27x27cm
Original bellows, in very good condition.
Camera is in very nice condition with only a little work.
The 2 original crews to tighten the tilt function are missing ...but can be made quite easy. No plate holder
It has a ground glass but it is covered with semi transparent paper!
It looks original to me but have never seen it before.
If you want glass, just grind the ground glass which is already in it
Folded size: 35x27x43 width x depth x height.

price 550,= (ex shipping costs)

P.s. the camera already has a new ground glass. So that's fixed.
