Not very good as a stand-alone[edit]

This should be incorporated into a larger article on the evolution of photography. As it is, even with significant editing, it is ambiguous and contains unattributed assertions.

Agreed. It should be merged into photographic plate. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 19:33, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Rethink claim of precedence[edit]

This claim should be reconsidered: "Dry plate, also known as gelatin process, is the first economically successful durable photographic medium..." Certainly the wet-plate process and the Daguerreotype would qualify as would the calotype. Rncooper (talk) 21:38, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Roger that[edit]

We second Rncooper. The thousands who made a living in pre-dry plate technologies--daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, collodion glass, paper--not successful? Nor such objects--paper which could last centuries properly cared for, daguerreotypes conceivably into the next millennium--durable? --Jim Luedke — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jimlue (talkcontribs) 00:16, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
