Fujifilm might have killed off the last of its peel-apart film. But not all hope is lost.
Yesterday, New55, a company that currently specializes in creating 4×5 positive-negative instant film, posted a video to Facebook that shows it has the capability to make peel-apart color film similar to Fujifilm’s FP–100c.
In the video, New55 founder Bob Crowley can be seen peeling apart a rudimentary print that appears to yield fairly impressive results.
In a comment beneath the video, New55 says it would have to completely develop their own formulas for creating the emulsion, but from the looks of it, they’re already off to a solid start.
Bob Crowley says the team will be meeting today to see if it’s possible to start working on more experimentation for bringing peel-apart color film to life.
In the meantime, we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that it works out and stock up on the last orders of Fujifilm FP–100c for sale.
