Miami film processing lab Palm Film Lab is launching a line-up of black-and-white films under the Palm Panchromatic brand.
It is releasing both a 100 and 400-ISO films – called Palm 100 and Palm 400. Both films will be available in 35mm and 120.
On its Instagram account in July, the lab announced the film would be launched via Kickstarter. The post said: “Palm Panchromatic is now available! We will launch globally by the end of July and will have a Kickstarter campaign with early bird pricing and merch options- stay tuned and follow @palmpancro for updates! Tag some of your favorite [sic] photographers that may want to check us out, we will be sponsoring young talent!”
While the Kickstarter did not launch before the end of July, on Saturday (7 August) the Instagram page announced a competition where the winner will receive 40 rolls of film – 10 each of Palm 100 35mm and 120, and of Palm 400 35 and 120 – plus a Fuji GA645W medium-format camera and a Contax RTS SLR with a Distagon 35/2.8 lens.
The Palm-branded films are the latest in a raft of rebranded films to emerge on the market.
Kosmo Foto will update with more news on the Kickstarter when it’s available.
