Sam Hiser visits New55

Friend, fellow collaborator, New55 and large format enthusiast Sam Hiser joined Alex Milne and me for a day of review of the New55 project, and its possible trajectory.

We had time to try something new: A New55 PN using Tri-X.  Yes, the stuff from Kodak. Don't get too excited, but it does work to some extent, yielding what we think is an ISO of about 200ish. Click on the image for a bigger view. This PN produced a sepia positive that was a bit excessive but might be corrected. The negative is dense, scanned fairly well, and isn't blocked up in the highlights.

If you have a chance to try Stone's Inn in Ashland MA, do so. This certified haunted pub has a great lunch menu.
