    Well, I'm in for some 5x7's.

    Look's like they'll likely at least hit their initial goal. Their stretch goal is, well, bold.

    Yeah, I think that actually has the opposite effect. If they want to conceal blemishes they should be making infrared plates.

    Looks interesting but, no spare change to spend on photo hobby this month. (Next several months really, gotta save.) I'll continue to shoot paper in 4x5 as a negative. With 8X10 grade 2, RC paper cut into four 4X5 sheets that is no more than 25 cents per negative, hung up to dry. What can I say, I'm cheap.
    But if I had the disposable income..........
