Not sure I'm up for a shot

Not sure I'm up for $15 a shot, but the @New55Project 4x5 Film kickstarter looks very interesting: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bobcrowley/new55-film

Well $15 is not worth it in a certain utilitarian way but if that is the measure NO film is practical at any cost(digital is peerless) but as an art form it's cost are fairly modest compared to say painting in oils.

Yeah, I've got a Speed Graphic that I'd love to mess with the tourists in downtown Petaluma with, but I could see doing that for $3 or so a shot.

Or maybe, since I've been doing a lot more electronics recently, I need to figure out how to hack up a digital back.
