Thread: New55 instant film instructions

    Re: New55 instant film instructions

    Found this via the New55 team. Great instructions. May I askhow many negatives can one batch of the fixer solution handle? For example, if I pour some 50% solution in a tray and process one negative, can I clear additional negatives in that same solution and if so about how many? Do I just go by how things look? I'm not talking about storing used solution, btw, just whether I can clear multiple images in one session with the same batch of solution in a tray. Thanks.

    Ray, thank you for such a clear and concise introduction. My first pack of New55 is arriving soon and this will be a big help.

    Thanks for doing it!
    I uploaded the file to the Graflex camera group on facebook and to Ipernity - so more people can see how it#s done right.

    Re: New55 instant film instructions

    I use the fixer it over and over until it looks like egg drop soup.

    I also always peel the print with the negative face down into the fixer and then drop the whole tongue right in. I do not wait to peel the negative from the tongue. That's how I get the results I show online every time.

    The importance of a strong mix, 50/50 water and Ilford Rapid Fixer, needed to remove the excess reagent, but also to stop any hint of residual development. That is why I always peel the print away with the negative down and drop the whole tongue (negative facing down) into the tray. I use a tray that is really a plastic dish tub so I have room. Immediate dropping of the negative into the fixer stops development and prevents any fog/solarization etc. that can happen if there is excess reagent, and it is easy to do.

    Thanks for these great instructions! We are up to our noses making film and surely appreciate the help!

    I like how easily the negative is removed from the pod. Easier than T55.

    Hope everyone is enjoying using New55. Here is a slight update to my New55 instructions. The update reflects the fact that the New55 team has now produced some great instructional material. They emphasize the need to protect the neg from light - they advise leaving the black paper on the neg and putting it all in the fixer.
