    Yes - but there are no set trends on KS, regardless of what they would have you think. Reading in depth into their analasys shows that the projections about the actual time money is pledged, the size of the pledges, and the probability of specific things happening in a project if XYZ are chosen by the creator is only true in a fraction of cases and their highest control rate is under 20% of cases. I am no statistician, but that means to me there is no way to predict what will happen in 30 days.

    While i am optimistic and hope this project happens, it is slowed down now, but most funding can happen in the last few moments, as they are moving forward if slowly, and steadily. Its up to all community members to post this on their FB pages, DPreview comment pages etc., to get the most traffic to the page...

    That would be a misreading.

    At what price?

    8x10 is four times the area of 4x5. At Freestyle,which I just checked, HP5+ for example is 3.3 times as much per sheet in 8x10 as in 4x5. If that same ratio held, we'd be talking nearly twenty bucks a sheet if the 4x5 does come in at $6. If the 4x5 is closer to $10 that'd be nearly thirty five bucks a pop in 8x10.

    It would be cool, but not THAT cool. At least not to me. Maybe if someone had the right commercial use and a client willing to pay it might make sense.

    At a fair for example, you could easily sell an 8x10 for $100 and keep the negative and sell them the print to take home. Especially fairs and Renaissance Festivals etc. That's not amazing but it's do-able. And sell them digital copy emailed to them of the negative for extra. Etc.

    Maybe in New York you could get that at a fair. Here I think $25 would be pushing it. Not sure about Ren Faires but I suspect it wouldn't be much different.

    I do have a similar idea for a project but the price point will be a lot less than $100 per print.

    Well you offer the 4x5 version for $25-$30 and the 8x10 for $100

    Some clients like it big!

    Indeed. From the kickstarter faq:

    Assuming this campaign is successful, will the cost per sheet reduce once you are set up to sell independently?

    The money pledged from Backers in this Kickstarter campaign is going primarily to manufacturing capacity. After a successful campaign, our goal would be to get the market price of New55 FILM down as far as component costs permit. Our goal is as low as $6 per sheet. (Scale economies can potentially improve things from there.)
    So they need enough people willing to pay $15/sheet to get them going, then the ongoing cost will be ~$6/sheet. I've backed it. I really hope enough others do too but if not then it is what it is.

    Confirmed mounted fine art AgBr prints 8x10 dont sell at 25GBP in London, maybe one a month.

    If you have a relative with an inkjet printer you email him/her a selfie, collect the A4 or A3 later.

    Better turnover attending estate sales buying old cameras and selling as shelf objects or oldey worldey film cameras.

    Well, I just bought my Polaroid 545 back which will go largely unused (maybe some expired Fuji Quickload here and there) in anticipation of this Kickstarter succeeding.

    I'm an optimist
