New55 Film – Kickstarter campaign coming soon!


Exciting news! The New55 project have recently announced that they will be starting up a Kickstarter campaign to help fund (I assume!) production of the positive/negative film that has been in the works for a while.

For those who aren’t aware of New55, it is:

New55 FILM is an instant peel-apart 4×5 film that produces a superb negative, and a positive print too. Emerging from Bob Crowley’s skunkworks, New55 FILM improves on its precursor, Polaroid Type 55, in two notable ways:

  • less Polatrash (lower parts-count)
  • balanced exposure between the positive and the negative

ATTENTION: New55 FILM is NOT a duplication of the old 55. If the product ever ships, it will trade on its own characteristics.
