Shot this past Saturday with my 1953 Pacemaker #speedgraphic on J. Lane #dryplates from @pictoriographica. This plate was from batch 11, and expires n April of this year. I think it’s stood up pretty well. I bought these plates to use in a bagmag I got with my Graflex SLR RB Series B, but the leather tire on it one of the first times I used it, so I’ve been without a way to shoot 4x5 plates for a while. Until recently, anyway, when I 3D printed a few parts to turn a couple of old Graflex film pack holders into plate holders. This is one of my test shots to check if it’s working. I think it is. When I get the plateholders from the Kickstarter I backed from @chromacamera and @pictoriographica , I’ll probably start using these repurposed film packs for their intended purpose, wet plate.
