I received both products ordered. I haven't used them yet but it fits my expectation. For now, no problem!

Ingenious Modern Dry Plates Holder

Congratulations: The perfect combination for a mid-19th century photographic process for mid- and late-20th century large format cameras (international back 4x5") with 21st century distribution and production tools (webshop and 3D printing!). Looking forward to trying out the Wet Plate Holder.

Full 5x7 plates!

With this plate holder I can shoot full 5x7" plates, which does make a difference in the size comparing to the modified film holder. My plates are clean now, but I still haven't decided if that's a good thing, ha, ha, ha... Good job!
