The worlds smallest Wet plate camera

‘Here is my latest innovation in Victorian Miniaturization technology. This is the world’s smallest Wetplate camera! (Maybe?) Made it myself out of toothpicks and popsicle sticks! Actualy, 1/32″ plywood and various other wood materials. Takes a 1/2″ square plate.’

Not only does this camera look beautiful but it actual functions as a camera. Made by Kevin Klein who has turned his hobby of miniaturizing Victorian technology, into the world’s smallest wet plate camera, using 1/32-inch plywood and other wood materials. This ‘coin’ sized camera can make incredibly delicate tiny plates which are 1/2-inch square plates, using a simple double convex lens that Klein salvaged from his collections.

Here below are some images of the camera and the actual plate that comes out of this tiny camera.
