<g>

Now can you imagine what it must've been like back in the day? A photographer (whose name escapes me at the moment) traveled with a surveying expedition in the US west carrying a camera that size. And had his own special wagon to serve as a darkroom ... at the time, the plates had to be coated with emulsion as needed. As in "glass plates".

His photos of Yosemite inspired the creation of our national park system, if I recall correctly.

Ah, wait.

...looks like there's enough space to set up a darkroom inside the camera..;-)

Sure. If you don't bring the film in there with you. There's the rub.

Now there's a thought. Imagine what it'd take to retouch those things.
Photoshop CDs the size of flying saucers. Wow.
