Film Ferrania, the reborn Italian manufacturer of analog film stock today announced that it will be selling an "Alpha" version of their first product, P30 black and white negative film, by mid-February.
Ferrania collected funds on Kickstarter in 2014 to resurrect a dormant film factory in northern Italy, but ran into difficulties getting it back up and running. While the pre-production batches of P30 still seem to have some issues with scratched film, Ferrania promises that this will be fixed when shipping starts. As it bills the film an "Alpha" it will take under advisement feedback from early adopters.
According to the company
FERRANIA P30® ALPHA is an 80 ISO panchromatic black and white motion picture film for still photography, and reintroduces the legendary P30 film produced by Ferrania during the 1960s.
Ferrania has posted a gallery of images taken with the newly produced film on its website and promises to update it as production moves along.
