Hi Tony 

Thanks for the comment on 'Chapman' and links. Lovely cameras and I look forward to sharing notes about the experience of restoring and using these extraordinary instruments - and the resulting pictures. I'm immediately curious about what kind of emulsions/plates/films/paper you use to make exposures.

Tom
