Grueling. Couple of things left to trouble shoot; just haven't had time. This was on a second attempt at making Tintypes with the Rockland kit. I used an old negative and the enlarger; I found this easier then loading/shooting the Graflex. Also I need to use positives on my next attempt.

    @carsten-schmitt Ha, I'm sure it does. Not a 100% what model; but it's an old speed with majority of the parts missing. It was a steal on ebay for $75 USD with a lens and the ground glass was intact. Took a little TLC but it it's perfectly fine for film. I avoided using it for this because the metal plates would have to be trim and plus the plates are sticky mess!

    @clownshoes: Got ann RB Supder D myself. Quarterplatefilm is a bit difficult to get. So far I have only tried it with a rollfilm back. They are really nice cameras though. I wanted to get the Rockland Kit but there is no distributor in Germany and the shipping and customs costs are a bit steep...
