    Will be interesting, but for the forseeable future, fp100c (even expired) is still a better choice.

    Re: New55 Color has begun

    Hello all

    I have been in contact with Bob and Sam at New55, as I offered to try and pitch their kickstarter campaign to organisations and institutions who might have an interest in backing this project (or in the least promoting it).

    I am trying to gather a list of possible companies who might be interested in this venture. (I'm currently still going through my twitter and instagram contacts, so this is by no means complete). However if any of you have any ideas or contacts of where else we can push the campaign, I would really appreciate it. (I am going to post something on Polaroid Passion and Large Format info). I am UK based so in terms of museums and archives I have only really thought about the UK (so international knowledge would be greatly appreciated)

    List so far:
    Victoria And Albert Museum
    Photographers Gallery
    National Media Museum
    Getty Images
    Compton Verney
    Arts Professional
    Humble Arts Foundation
    Big Shot France
    1 Instant
    Curator Space
    Polaroid Easy Art
    Format Festival
    Brighton Photo Biennale
    If You Leave
    Women in Photography
    Polaboy
    Mint Cameras
    Artquest
    Artists Newsletter
    Polaroid Passion
    Jerwood Foundation
    CVAN
    Unseen Photo Fair
    Pamplemousse
    Retina Photography Festival
    Seed Monograph
    Aesthetica Magazine
    Urbanautica
    Soon is Now
    Format Magazine
    Urban Photographers
    Another Magazine
    V+S Company
    ICA London
    032c

    Thanks for helping to get the word out. After the US election we will be turning up the volume in the race to the end. Meanwhile, many of you wrote on this archived thread in 2014. It's time to reminisce:

    Thank you Bob.

    If any more institutions come up I will of course forward the Press Release to them.

    Best of luck (both in the election and with the film)!

    Also remember if this kickstarter succeeds we will get a color version of P/N. That would be frickin awesome. Bypassing processing C41 but get an instant color negative. Let's make this happen!

    Nope, no negative. It's only a positive.

    Goal nr 3:
    3. This is most exciting: It may be possible to produce a true Color positive-negative material. Never before has this been done except by a few who reclaimed "Fujinegs". An instant color negative is a new idea and something never before offered in the history of analog photography. In addition to being used for instant camera formats, this material could potentially be made into 120 rollfilms, 35mm and used in both instant AND non-instant cameras! This could be an important outcome from your support of this campaign, though it is not a reward here.

    Right from their kickstarter page.

    Ok I didn't read the whole thing. The last I've heard from them it was that New55 Color was going to be a positive only but hey that's great! even more exciting now.

    Yeah that is why I mentioned it. Also when this will become reality the fixing step might not be necesary for the Color PN film. I read that somewhere but I forgot where. So to me the most exciting Kickstarter campaign by far! :-)
