New tripod for the 12″x15″ camera

Got this via Feepay, it was in Devon as pick up only but thanks to the wet plate network, Andy picked it up for me, handed it to someone else, who then took it home to Wigan from where I picked it up. Thanks to all involved. A sort of photographic relay race.

It’s made by National Cine Equipment, New York. It’s in pretty good condition, needs a good clean and a few fastenings replacing. I was sick of the 12×15 moving on the old Manfrotto tripod so hopefully this will be a little more solid.


I also need to sort out a new dark tent/darkroom for the back of the car, as the old plywood one was dismantled when I got rid of the van…
