Hi, I've been making and perfecting dry plates coated with my own emulsion for a couple years now, using them to create photographs and prints that have been popular locally. You can see some in my gallery here. The emulsion is ~ISO 2, and has a normal sensitivity (sees UV and blue) with a very old-style look. The plates can be tray developed under a safelight similar to developing prints (except I use HC-110 Dil B), so no special equipment is needed. I posted classifieds (not here) to sell some boxes of spare plates to others to use, and they sold surprisingly quickly with inquiries about whether I had more to sell. In light of that, I figured it might be fun to see how interested people are in trying out plates or have tried them with a "normal" slow, virtually grainless emulsion such as you'd use in the late 1880s. So I set up a poll. I shoot 4"x5", but I'm sure other folks shoot other sizes. If newly made dry plates were available , would you be tempted to try them out?
