Whole plate movements

Construction has begun on my next camera. A reproduction of the Chevalier “Grande Photographie” folding whole plate camera design (see image of vintage examples) but carrying a Voigtlander petzval lens. It is part of my long term goal of having the whole plate format as part of my repertoire, initially I will use it for the half plate format till I have a whole plate mercury pot and a supply of plates.
