WHY sutter pop-up tent for collodion photography?

Ciao Ragazzi!

This time we go out from my workspace to take picture outside with StenopeiKa 5×7 tailboard modular camera, Sine-igne 200 mm f4 wooden lens and… try the new sutter pop-up tent for ice fishing.

For the location, thanks to Lorenzo, it was possible to choose the alpine refuge “Faggione delle valli” located in a Acquerino natural park, very wonderful natural park near my work space, in the mountains between Pistoia and Prato (Tuscany, Italy).

The sutter tent is a very confortable pop-up tent, after 2/3 times is possible to open it in only 1 minute, and disassemble in the same time. Thank to the bag pack you can transport it without problem in any locations.

The tent was born for ice fishing so, in different areas it filters the light from the outside, but with a black adhesive tape is possible to have a really good hold of light and work in serenity.

I did not see any qualitative differences with the most popular quick-fish eskimo (type 2), and if you consider that the sutter is also found in Europe, i think it is a great advantage for European collodion photographers that want a definitively solution for take pictures with collodion outside (and sometimes also inside).

The only negative note concerns the height, in fact for now I found only the model with high 1.70 meters, for me is ok but for the tallest friends this can surely represent a problem.

So, I hope you like the video, see you next time!

Catlabs added an interesting video on its YouTube channel.

He speak about the custom 8×10 wetplate holder that i make for him with 8×10 full size 208×257 mm mainly used in the United States market.

Like the last versions of holders i use only plastic and metals (aluminium), i don’t use wood to avoid contamination.

For the United States friends you can find it on Catlabs website  here, so you save much money for shipment.
