I remember hearing about New55 shortly after the Impossible Project started in earnest. I didn't hear much else about it, and didn't think anything of it either---then I got a 4x5 camera and some old stock Type 55 and can't wait.
The blog for the project has started to ramp up, so I'm thinking we may be close to a launch. The posts are very vague and I have yet to see a new55 envelope anywhere on the web (just scans of the negatives, which could just as easily be made in Instagram on an iPhone), so I can't help but think this may be just a huge scam.
What do you think? Will we see an order page on the new55 site before year's end, is this just the game of a charlatan, or are we somewhere in the middle?
You know, I'm a member here too. Everything technical, business, social and artistic about New55 FILM is on that blog. Everything.
