And a good look at the 8x10 packaging reveals they could deffinitely save a bundle by cutting down on it. They might even make it more palitable by offering it in 10 shot packages instead of the 15 it now comes in?
    I remember that thread and was interested back then. Agree with David on the processor. It needs to mechanized to work right but could sure be a lot less expensive; like maybe less frills and hand-crank operated.

    Count me in Tracy. I probably wouldn't use more than 2 packages a year but I'd still like to use it.

    T55 in 8x10 would be pure magic.....I'd gladly snap it up!

    8x10 Polaroid Pos/Neg would be great! I would buy it; count me in.

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.
