About

The progress in the service of the old craft.

WHO WE ARE

We are Galaxy, photography professionals who have almost two hundred years of experience (combined!) in photography under our belt. We are those fanatics who would set darkroom in the bathroom as kids and whose screening process of a photo paper is harsher than that of a model looking for a boyfriend. We have lamented the discontinuation of several direct positive paper manufacturers, which made us realize that this void needs to be filled.

WHAT WE WANT TO MAKE

We want to make a new photo paper for pinhole and large format cameras. Our intention is not merely to bring back the photo paper that has been gone out of the market, but to make an even better one, with higher sensitivity, better dynamic range and easier development process that would be performed with the room temperature of solutions. We have done our homework and we know how to make it. Here are its features:

  • RC-based (resin-coated) positive reversal photographic paper containing the largest amount of silver in the industry that allows to create distinctive half-tones and rich dark tones.
  • Very high ISO-speed which corresponds to about 120 film ISO. High speed enables shorter exposures — no more long sitting in front of the camera!
  • No need for a negative, you can shoot directly on the paper.
  • Adjusted reversal process. User-friendly.
  • Fixed grade – contrast.
  • Glossy Embossed surface.
  • Will be available in the following sizes: 4×5″, 5×7″, 8×10″, 11×14″, 16×20″.
  • Custom sizes may be available: 4×10″, 7×17″, 8×20″, 12×20″, 14×17″, 20×24″.
  • Very dark red light is required due to high speed.

HOW WE WANT TO MAKE IT

Our experience has brought us to negotiating with Slavich, one of the largest remaining photo paper manufacturers, about producing new black-and-white reversal photographic paper. We have been working with them for a while now and know the high quality of the photo paper they are producing. We have agreed that we can use their facilities to produce this photo paper with our unique formula. While developing this project, we worked with the best international photographers and Photography Research and Development Institute (Russia), analyzed dozens of photo papers and right now we are on the verge of discovering the perfect emulsion for the reversal photographic paper.

We are sure there are other photographers who might be interested in this paper. Larger amount of interested photo enthusiasts will enable us produce more packs of photo paper at a reasonable price. Additionally, if the demand is sufficient enough, we will continue production of this photo paper on a regular basis.

Timeline

The stages of our development.

  • July 2015

    Start

    Let’s get this party project started!

  • July – August 2015

    Test batch

    Running a test batch will enable us make the necessary adjustments and tune up equipment.

  • September – October 2015

    Chemicals testing

    It's time for some lab fun with developers! Since we use our original proprietary recipe, the developing solutions might have a little different chemicals combination than the regular developers.

  • October – December 2015

    First Batch Run

    At this stage we will be ready to manufacture the photo paper in all its glory!

  • December 2015

    Shipping

    Not only Santa will be busy in December, because we’ll be finally shipping our rewards!

Wall of fame

Dear friends,
We greatly appreciate your participation in Galaxy Hyper Speed Direct Positive Photo Paper project! Thanks to your contribution this photo paper will be manufactured, and we couldn’t have made it without you! You helped us influence the history of photography and preserve this unique analog product. This photo paper will help all the antique large format photo cameras remain useful in the digital age. Again, we would like to heartily thank you for your support of Galaxy Hyper Speed Direct Positive Photo Paper project. We hope that our future endeavors will also become of interest to you and together we will continue the revival of analog photography.

Best Regards,
Team Galaxy
