    Re: New 5x7 daylight processing tank on Kickstarter

    Just a quick update: we are expecting new prototypes to arrive tomorrow. Hopefully, they will seal up tight enough for real world testing and we can then post some samples. You can see the issue with the current prototypes here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/1749864

    Judging from some of the emails we've gotten, we probably need to explain how Kickstarter works: basically, if enough people pledge support to the project, we'll complete the design and take it to production. Each "backer" will receive a reward for their support. If it doesn't meet the goal, the project dies. (And I'm left with a couple of really expensive prototypes!) More details on Kickstarters FAQ page: https://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq...ics?ref=footer

    I'm trying to move entirely over from 4x5 to 5x7 and this would be huge help for me there. Currently all my 5x7 development is in trays.

    Sorry that this didn't happen. I use 5x7 and would be excited to see that inventors and manufacturers were currently thinking about a very useful format. This is my first post and would like to see that others have realized that 5x7 is light compared to 8x10 and about twice the size as 4x5 with only a bit more weight. (To say nothing about the format shape)

    Conrad, you are welcome here! Please be assured that others too have found 5x7 to be a great format for the reasons you say. I have just taken delivery of 25 sheets of Ilford FP4 Plus in 5x7 format for use over the next few weeks.

    There are many 5X7 users here, it is my primary format. Open a new thread to introduce yourself and I am sure you find many like minded members.

    Thanks George! Enjoy the fp4plus in 5x7..........that is my film of choice for 5x7 for many years. Sharp, flexible, and very consistent. Conrad
