B&S used to offer a Wet Plate kit that included a folding Brownie converted to accommodate the plates.
Is this not an option anymore?
Does anyone know where I can find a portable camera ready to use for Wet Plate or Dry Plate Tin Types?

Thanks,
Sarah

Sarah,
I had a beautiful custom hand made replica of a 1/4 wet plate camera with plate holder and back, made by David Thornberry a camera maker here here in southern California.
I am very happy with it since I could not afford an original at this time. I feel sure he will be only to glad to send you some picture of the camera he made for me,
He will make any size format to order.
Best Clive
