Review: New55 FILM

"This negative is truly amazing"

"After just a little practice I got great results"

"The tutorial was good. I hope you include scanning and outdoor photography".

These are some of the positive reviews we have received from new users of New55 FILM.   I get a near perfect success rate (not remembering to open the focal plane shutter was my mistake), and the develop and fix sequence is easy to do, and fast.

A nice comment on a forum

It's amazing the project has come this far and is now delivering. While the product may not perfect, it is real - The real hope is that New55 will have an ongoing future in the midst of a shrinking (or limited) fan base of film users. If New55 receives continued support, it will hopefully survive - and improve.

I'm impressed the project has come this far, considering the difficulties, and hope it will advance much further. 
Thanks to those who are working hard to make it possible.

New55 FILM New55 PN Instant film reviews

For some excellent recent examples of New55 PN, check out the blog here and also Flickr and Facebook.

Users are reporting very good spreads with few if any gaps. The positive prints are good and the negatives are highly detailed and scan very well.

An important point is the separation of the negative and positive using these directions, the same as have been used since the start of the project in 2010.

Users can expect fine, super detailed negatives with very little grain and long tonal scales such as this one. Click to enlarge.
