I'm looking for some advice. I've a Chamonix F2 and would like to explore wet plate work. I've been looking at the Chamonix Wet Plate holder but I've read that its not compatible with standard aluminum sheets. Can anyone clear this up for me and secondly will the silver nitrate damage the camera. Thanks

You might try sending a PM to @Monsta on this Forum he's a wet plate worker and should be able to give you some advice.

I used to use the Chamonix wet plate holder in 4x5 and used a glass sheet in addition to the aluminium sheet to ensure that the back held the thinner aluminium sheet in place.
