    Is Type 55 for a 545 holder, or a 550 holder ?

    If you want Panatomic X you can still order some in long rolls from Kodak, as it is still used for aero cameras. Otherwise it is not available any longer.

    If you expect a duplicate of 55, that is not the goal. I am now using Efke 25 which processes quite well in reagent III which has been developed for the project. I think the two are superior to 55 in some ways.

    The biggest opportunity is to make 4x5 more accessible to a greater number of people, and marketing it to a new audience of younger people just discovering 4X5.
    What isn't made clear here or on the web-site is in
    what format the 55 will be in ?

    If it's type 55 single sheet for the 545 holder I say
    hurrah & then I will even keep my Daylab, where I
    can use it as well as in my Super Speed Graphic.

    If it's for the type 550 holder, like what Fuji is
    producing,I would be most disappointed.

    I hope that it won't be necessary to carry around a
    clearing bucket, as they are very expensive collectors items now.

    I'm sorry, but I'v just got to say it,

    Very Punny !

    The materials produced are all 4x5 format. We can also produce 8x10.
