Get set to shoot wet plate in your large format camera with these Scully/Osterman modifications.

Our standard modification option is the largest opening we can make in a sheet film holder for a particular format.  A standard mod is 1/2 inch smaller on each side than the original film sheet it was made to hold. For example: a standard modification of a 4x5 sheet film holder will accomodate tin or glass plates that are 3.5 x 4.5 inches. A 5x7 standard mod would hold plates 4.5 x 6.5 inches. And our 8 x 10 standard mod will hold 7.5 x 9.25 inch plates.

If you select  a custom dimension for an opening, it must be smaller than the standard opening for that particular film holder.

Corners are fitted with stainless steel wire to support the plate. The best results are obtained from film holders that have a solid aluminum septum that separates the two sides (such as Fidelity, Toyo, and Lisco). Avoid older film holders with wooden frames, and those made by Riteway and Sinar, as these cannot be modified cleanly.

Send your film holder to us at the address below and we'll make the modifications for you.
