    Just fishing around here but does anyone have any success with creating a Wet Plate look using a RED Monstro or any DSMC2 camera??? Monocrome ??? maybe.
    And if you did create a LUT or look can you describe the process.. I may have a project coming up I would like to transition from old historic plates to moving images in modern times..

    I'll say two things about this.

    1. The philmTools ACHROMIC LUTS may be what you are looking for. Each one has a different recipe for deriving a monochrome image from color. Things really change when it's red or yellow or green or blue that's giving you darker or lighter tones. Ditto warmer or cooler colors that give you darker or lighter tones. Ditto more or less saturated colors giving you darker or lighter tones. You get the idea...

    2. The best video about the wet plate process I've ever seen:

    I had a filter made up recently to try and help achieve a wet plate look on digital. Wetplate is sensitive to blue (mainly) so I had a bandpass filter for 425-495nm made by MidOpt (Filter code BP470) cost a few hundred pounds to have a 77mm filter made but I'm very happy with the results, though I haven't tried it on the Red yet (just stills). I wished it extended into the UV (for a full spectrum OLPF) but a filter wasn't available that didn't also let wavelengths above 500nm

    More food for thought (converting color images to monochrome):
