    Signs of life at the New 55 project

    New 55 is showing some signs of life and looking like they will go the crowd-funding route to try to make it into production.

    Posted January 1, 2014 on the New 55 blog:

    Restart of New 55

    Things to do in 2014:

    1. Assemble a new work group locally, in Europe, and Far East
    2. Revisit all old vendor quotes, sales projections, and new suppliers
    3. Revise the set of technical drawings
    4. Prepare fundraising effort and execute

    If 4 is successful, hire the production engineer, tool up, and start production. The supply of 4x5 film has to be revised and there are some new candidate emulsions yet to test. Also there is the finalization of the receiver sheet substrate and coatings, which will take some time to finalize.

    If the fundraiser falls short, wrap up the technical knowledge into some sort of open source format, and schedule a couple of handmade New55 workshops.
    And today, January 8 via New 55 Facebook:

    Official start of the restart today: New55's Sam Hiser named as CEO, will run kickstarter effort. BC

    I'd be all over this, I just hope it can be made to work in my Fotoman 45SPS, with the older style back, which is not strictly an Graflok one.

    I'll be contributing on Kickstarter though, definitely.

    I was thinking about getting another holder myself. Now I will have to.

    To buy a P-holder or not to buy a P-holder?
    The stuff disappeared before I got hold of my first LF camera. My Sinar came with a polaroid holder that I sold thinking Ill never get the opportunity to use it, oh well.
    When will the IR version be available
    Best regards
