I saw a demonstration of a 20x16 inch Polaroid film once and there was applause lasting several minutes when the print was peeled off - it was so awesome (in the British sense). This appears to have the neg like the old 105 film. But slower. I think it will be a success. I wish I could use it now. Fantastic. The Impossible Project have come up with a good 'un!

I'm paying attention to these guys there is quite some time, once they have scale of production and drop a bit their prices they will explode in sales.

GOOOOOOOOOOOO! I thought their standard SX-70 film was spendy.

I'm still waiting for New55 4X5 since IP seems not to have developed a 4X5 product.

8x10 Polaroids were always expensive anyway. Pro-rata, a 10pack of 4x5 would be around 40, not allowing for packaging, and as has been said, some economies of scale would kick in sooner or later if they want to gain and keep some market share. There are thousands of 4x5 Polaroid holders on shelves all over the world. I have two of them here, just waiting...
Not that I'll be a regular user, but just for the sheer insanity of blowing forty bucks on ten/// eight exposures.

New55 are steaming along...
