★★★ By 6.7.2022 all Zebra Dry Plates are coated with NEW more resilient Emulsion! ★★★


Standard Zebra 4×5 Glass Dry Plates are coated with ultra fine grain silver gelatine emulsion that is sensitive only to UV and blue light with nominal sensitivity of ISO 2. They deliver impressive image results with finest grain quality at extreme resolution. Contrast of the plates is moderate to high making them ideal for further use with alternative printing processes. However despite the high contrast there is less separation in the shadows meaning they can also be scanned and digitalised with great results. Plates are completely hand made so each one of them is inspected a few times thru the process to assure maximum quality!

In the box there are 10 Standard 4×5 Zebra glass Dry Plates together with easy to follow developing instructions. DEVELOPING CHART for Standard Zebra Glass Dry Plates is available right HERE.

First Thoughts -

Easy to use, There is still some testing to dial in exposure, but I developed my first prints this weekend and was happy with the clarity I was able achieve - plan to continue to explore and compare these to my paper negatives and regular B&W and Color films - Nicely done!

Dry plate class at Community College

I thought I would share that Artintersection in Gilbert Arizona led a group of students through a dry plate workshop using your materials. The students were very enthusiastic and had a great time.

Workshop with Dry Plates and Fourteen Students

We held a short demonstration workshop with fourteen college students at Art Intersection in Gilbert, Arizona. Each student went away with a plate negative and contact print.

Hi. I just got my first batch of plates from Zebra. And I’m loving them.
First time user. Great service and product. I’ll be ordering again. Thanks.

A wonderful first experience with glass plates.

I developed my own work for over 30 years - until digital… now I’m getting back into it and being able to develop by red safelight is a game changer. The plates are VERY slow and it is difficult to judge exposure- so start out with bright sun in the mid-day hours.
