    The news is that the owner of Film Ferrania confirmed work is in progress and soon he will be able to reveal more of his plans, ending speculation about said works.

    At the moment, the filmferrania website appears to be down. The discussion on Flickr surprised me, with people seriously advocating the re-introduction of monochrome films that left the market 40/50 years ago. If the new filmferrania outfit do get going and introduce/re-introduce black & white films, that isn't going to be particularly good news for the likes of Adox, Foma, Ilford etc. What is that saying, "be careful of what you wish for"?

    My only concern would be that Italian film will work like Italian cars; when they do work, they're beautiful, but they won't record images at all on alternate tuesdays and Catholic holidays, and every six rolls you'll have to recalibrate your EI or you'll get muddy colors.

    To be fair, so far there is no discussion at that very thread at Flickr to re-introduce films from 50 years ago.

    If a a new owner or someone ordering a custom coating starts up photographic production again, I don't see why that should be with old old formulae instead of the latest technology of Ferrania.

    That's a Vatican City request!

    With respect, you need to re-read the thread, admittedly it's long and wanders all over the place but it contains this remark:

    "Finally, it would also be interesting to put back into production some historical Ferrania emulsions, such as Pancro 30".


    The point I was making, is that if the new outfit are persuaded by such calls to manufacture B & W film that cannot be good news for the several existing B & W film manufacturers. I think if the new filmferrania were to re-introduce some of the colour films, particularly in sizes such as 126, that would be useful to many of us, but I have reservations about them manufacturing monochrome film. Something which the old Ferrania hadn't done for about 50 years or so.

    I take the stand that who is able to engineer colour-films, which are based on seperate layers similar to those monochrome films, is also able to engineer classis monochrome films.
