With all the news of film products going away, it’s nice to see one coming back! When I heard about this, I had to ask myself “what’s the big deal?” So I did a little research and realized: the return of Ferrania is fantastic news and it seems that many people agree. They are revamping film production and the feedback for them has been wonderful. They aim to be able to ship new film in the first quarter of 2014. This will be color negative film based on Ferrania Solaris FG-100 Plus (for still photography) and a professional color reversal film derived from Scotch Chrome 100.
Ferrania has the equipment to finish film in almost all photographic and motion picture formats: 110, 120, 126, 127, 135, 220, Super 8, Double 8, 16mm, 35mm and 70mm however they will only produce film in demand by today’s marketplace. The company was founded in 1923 and mainly produced film, but also some film cameras as well. Around 2009, after a rich history, Ferrania ceased production of their photographic products. However with the resurgence of film photography, they find themselves able to live alongside digital photography.
