    Ken, sorry, I would love too, but can't. Gotta save for all the 8x10 sheets of film I'll be buying soon! Such is life, enjoy your 4 boxes.

    Way cool news! Guess I'd better go find a new version holder. I have the old 545 and it supposedly won't work with their version (though I don't know what's different). I'm only in for a few sheets, but I guess that means I'll be buying more when they get it completely running.

    Signs of life at the New 55 project

    Are you sure about the holder? I believe the new film will work with both.

    Edit: this is from the Kickstarter update #15:
    Holders

    The Polaroid 545 Land Film Holder is the strong metal holder that works best with New55 FILM. Also, the plastic version, called the Polaroid 545i Land Film Holder, functions identically and is a few ounces lighter.

    I'm not completely sure, but I did read that somewhere in the several discussions about the new55 project.

    I haven't seen detailed photos of the newer holder, so I don't know the differences. With my older one and the expired T55 I've used, I can't rely on the rollers to break the chemical pod, so I use a brayer to squish it and roll it out. I don't know if that's mainly the fault of my old holder or the old pods, though.

    Bethe, as far as I know both the 545 (earlier all-metal holder, the one with the instructions printed on the back side) and the 545i (later holder with more plastic, thus saving a little weight) both will function identically with New55. It was apparently designed around these holders.

    However, New55's Sam has already mentioned that only the 545i (later) holder will fit into the new KS Wanderlust handheld 4x5 camera. Maybe this is what you read about?

    And do not confuse these two holders with the earlier (up to 1970) "Naked" 500 holder -- which some people continued to use successfully with T55.

    No need to rush for holders, since shipment is unlikely to be sooner than 8 months from funding.

    Ah, just double-checked and mine is the 500. Guess I have a few months to track something down if that doesn't work.
