great fun for Speed/Crown shooters

I am using type 55 with a Speed Graphic and I am really happy with the results. With a calibrated rangefinder and a well timed shutter, its like using an oversized 35mm... a REALLY oversized 35.

Years ago I liked this product .

No Technical information was available on the box. My 4x5 Polaroid holder which worked beautifully with some old type 54, would not release the 55 film. I was on a job and was very thankful to have the out of date 54 with me. I threw away the box of 55. Very expensive experiment.

since Polaroid has stopped making it, my review doesn't count for much. I would like to see some enterprising company pick it up, it's a unique product for a growing niche market...alternative process photographers
