On December 31st, 2017, New55 announced that they have ended operations. A single sentence post made to the main page stated:
Kevin, Steven, and Bill share their Christmas wishlist items. Bill and Steven talk about their experiences shooting FujiFilm Pro 400h, Kodak Ektar 100, and Portra 400 in the snow. One of those didn't come out as expected. Nikon has announced they're servicing various Nikon manual focus SLRs and Lenses. Silberra has Indiegogo updates, and Kodak has launched the highly anticipated motion picture film business cards.
Steven, Bill, and believe it or not, KEVIN, interview Jay Musselwhite, the owner of Franklin Backdrops. They discuss how he paints a canvas backdrop, learn about his creative process in making a backdrop. Oh yeah, he shoots film too! We talk about that too!
