For those with old folders (and old plate holders!) dry glass plates are now available commercially from J. Lane. Available in any size (he will custom cut them for you). I bought three boxes 6.5cmx9cm (10 plates each) for my Plaubel Makinas. I have about fifty Makina holders, which will hold film, or dry plates. This will be a fun project. I also want to buy 9x12cm and 4x5" in the future.

I bought them directly here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/5812747...SABEgJxlPD_BwE

But Freestyle and other dealers are now also selling them. No affiliation with seller, just passing on some good info

That looks awesome Nokton. I hope to have time and patience to use glass plates someday. I have several cameras to use, most notably a Goerz Ango and a Patent Etui 9x12. And even my sister still keeps my grandfather Ihagee 9x12

Thanks Carbo73, I retire end of December 2018, so I will have time at last for photography.
Dry plate has long been an interest of mine.

Not sure how early you mean, but I have a black Bessa 6x9, uncoated lens (assuming pre-war), no RF, just a folding viewfinder on the side.

I found these two this weekend. Couldn't decide which to buy, so I bought them both. Now I just have to address a few issues with them (especially with the Voigtlander), and then I can try some film through them.

Kodak Vigilant Junior Six-20. Roughly the same as the Moskva 4, but much simpler.. Takes 620, close enough.

Looked for this camera for 15 years and now have three. Will probably never see again. A three party effort by Takane, Ofuna, and Zunow. 6X6 only.

A bit ugly, but does the job handily!

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder - Optics outside of the lens is only a big deal to collectors.

It's good to hear it is getting some use.

Here are my 120 folders:

An Ensign Selfix 20, which, when I bought it, I thought was the poshest version you cold get. I now find that there was an Autorange version with a Tessar lens.

EDIT:

I tried to add a pic, (I do have some more to post), but I couldn't manage to do it here even though I did manage to add it to an earlier post in the "What have you just BOUGHT" thread, and now it's gone from that post as well.

I just got a Makina 67 in excellent condition with a non-working meter. No biggie though since I have a very good Gossen meter. I have shot only digital since 1999 and am shocked at the processing costs. I'll have to start doing my own development again if I am going to shoot film a lot. Fortunately a have some very good film scanners in 35mm and flat bed. Click image for detail.

Very nice - don't have or had one of these. What can you say about their view/rangefinders, comparing them?

Zeiss Ikonta 521A. New bellows and CLA. No Tessaritis--Ask Jurgen. I've been looking for one of these for a while.
