Final new type 55 film images images printed in the darkroom 16 x 20
4×5 film image of the new type 55, both a positive and negative.The Company’s first planned photographic product, New55 “PN”, is an ecologically sensitive large-format instant film that parallels a Polaroid product (Type 55) that was still profitable when that company wound up its operations in 2008. The prior product was unique, and gave a desired result unlike any other analog or digital image, however its manufacture required expensive processes that employed VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). New55 “PN” addresses that technical and environmental challenge with a redesigned, all-aqueous (water-based) process that eliminates toxic solvents.
8 by 10-inch instant film provides a large image area and high levels of detail. Professional photographers use the format to achieve results not possible on any other type of film.
Our color film formula produces photographs with richness and depth. Colors are well balanced, tones are natural, definition is sharp.” – Impossible Project
