All, I am thrilled to quote our colleague Simon from another thread in which I was struggling to put together a group purchase of film from another company: Since this announcement was made casually and without fanfare in the other thread, I felt it deserving of its own separate mention. Simon also imparted the good news that this film will be available in shorter, more affordable lengths (presumably 100ft or 30m or so), and will be unperforated. Let me point out that 70mm backs are plentiful on the used market, and they are very high quality e.g. the Mamiya 70mm back, which has a hand-squeezed vacuum attachment that is very easy to work with. Also, processing this film is not that different from the usual, although it won't fit onto the standard spools and that requires a bit of ingenuity. Let me note also that LF users may find good use for this film in 4x10 backs with inserts- I'll try that myself and report soon. Also, this film should be very welcome to pinhole users. Let me encourage everyone to start saving up for this wonderful film, and if anyone has questions about how to use it, I and others will be happy to help.
