    Re: Video: Testing Old Polaroid Type 55

    Yeah - I’ve seen some curious results with the new stuff, though I’d be hard pressed to figure a use for a product that is both so expensive and so unpredictable.

    Re: what camera is this guy using?

    This must be the guy that’s buying all of the Type 55 that I am bidding on! Just joking, but that is an incredible amount of spendy and temperamental film. Kudos to him.

    Re: Ilford SFX200 - Wratten #29 or IR filter?

    Paul - coming from using Tmax 100 and 400 sheet film to Rollei IR400 has been quite the change in loading film. It is so thin!

    That is an interesting take - I wasn't thinking about filling and drainage times.

    I generally presoak and run D76 1:1 for all of my processing, so times are generally not on the short side.
