    8 x 10 & Polaroid PN

    I saw the post on LF camera sales and wondered how many of you would buy an 8X10 camera if Polaroid would make their PN available? I know they made some for the last big show, but decided there wouldn't be enough interest to offer it to the public. I would buy it in an instant, and everybody I know with a big camera was interested. I think there would be a lot of sales of 8 X 10's if this was an option. So I'm just curious if the interest is as large as I suspect. Maybe if enough people mailed a letter, faxed a note, or e-mailed them! Then MAYBE?

    I would have been very intersted. Earlier this year I sold my processor, only after researching that they would not produce the PN material.

    I'd love it, but I'm not holding my breath. Apparently Polaroid has developed it, but didn't believe there was sufficient market to produce it commercially. That said I doubt having Type 55 film has spurred 4x5 camera sales to any real extent.

    I'd buy Type 855 in half a heartbeat, assuming the price was relatively reasonable (at least in line with the current 8x10 Polaroid materials).

    I'd buy it too, but probably not enough to justify its existence (maybe a couple of boxes a year). 8x10" Polaroid materials are around $9 a sheet from B&H for existing products. It could get to be an expensive habit. How many people would really shoot enough of it to make it worth producing?

    I have an 8x10 Wista Field in storage... type 855 would be enough for me to get it out again.

    In 4x5 b&w I pretty much only shoot type 55 these days... not having a darkroom available for personal work - the polaroid films have been all that's kept me shooting with any regularity.
