Definitions for "Darkcloth"
n. A black light-proof cloth which is draped over the rear of a view camera and the photographer's head. The primary purpose is to allow the image on the ground glass to be seen, but it also reduces the chance of fogging the sheet film when the darkslide is removed to make the exposure. _______________________________________________________
