    I got a backer (150$: 10 sheets plus a 5x7 print as a keepsake) after my submission for the 'SALT' MSA, performed with my 545i holder and T-54 film:

    What I find attractive in particular is their claim that you can use the same parameters for correct exposure of positive and negative. I expect that one can at least learn to judge the negative correctly by the positive.

    Then you know that you have 'got the image' even your motive is not completely immobile - and paste it together with the (hopefully few) other exposures in your logbook and add some notes. The final image will then be the print of the negative. This would be a great tool for learning and improving! And so it would be really a new development in analog photography - which would have been highly admired even before digital photography (almost... :-) killed polaroid.

    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.
