New55 website is up, and other things

Sam has put up a very functional and artistically minimal site at http://new55.net which has what I think is a very appropriate look.  You might notice "The Tomato" logo.  I imagine that thing spinning as the film loads.

A new addition is the convenient paypal button that quite a few supporters have used recently!  A gigantic Thank you.

We're definitely not all the way there, and though risks remain - and I feel reasonably optimistic - I am temporarily (mentally) exhausted.  It's a good thing we have a versatile team - one that is running to beat the time and money clock.

In a couple of weeks we'll be showing our balanced receiver and negative which is a big accomplishment.  Yesterday we found pinholes in some of our long awaited substrate. There's always something to deal with.

Is New55 planning on producing Polaroid type 57 (3000 speed film) too?

No plans, to duplicate any Polaroid films. We have a lot of risk to overcome still, but a faster version of New55 is conceivable - if we can get this project in a self-sustaining state.
