Saving Fuji FP-100C and Wet Plate Pack Film Shooting

A lot has changed in the last few years regarding the survival of film, photographers are now making direct appeals to manufacturers and gaining support from other shooters in a global effort to save our materials. Perfect examples of this success: Impossible Project instant materials, CineStill and their new successful Indiegogo campaign, New 55 instant material, Film Ferrania and now perhaps Fuji FP-100C, only time will tell.

Fuji FP100 C Satin Negative Compared to New55 PN

Just thought I would post this side by side… please note the New55 PN was shot on a tripod at F22 where as the Fuji FP 100C Satin was shot hand held in my Polaroid 195 camera at F4…

Of course in the satin recovered negative there is the texture of the print which is kinda cool…

After promoting this on Kickstarter and here on FR I finally caved in and purchased separately a batch of this material for testing/ review as I wanted to get it done in 2015!

Stay tuned for my thoughts on this new material sometime next week….
