    My understanding is one of the start-ups founders is a filmmaker who is using some of his own funds in a holy quest to keep Colour reversal Movie stock available. That said, I am hoping that once they have something to coat, they may make other formats.

    Not sure if a given coating line can work with different thicknesses of film base without a lot of adjustments. Roll film tends to be on a thiner base, while sheet film tends to be thicker. 16mm Movies may want acetate base to make it easy to splice, as would 35mm still film for its lack of Light piping, roll and sheet is perhaps better on polyester, but that is not as critical.

    Was it Adox that said they might also coat 127?

    Wittner-Cinetec have visited the Ferrania plant and have a blog on it, its well worth a read.
    Film Ferrania state that they will be producing E6 and C41 type films first, and are looking at bringing back their famous B&W stocks as soon as possible.

    They also want to reintroduce alot of the obsolete film formats that are no longer made, such as 126 film for example.

    Please dont tell me that AGFA is stopping production of Aviphot Chrome 200?

    Wittner-Cinetec told me last year that they were guranteed supply of the stuff for at least 3 years.

    Where are we at on this? I assume that to plagiarise Mr Churchill's words during WWII after El Alamein, "This is clearly not the end and is not even the beginning of the end but it may be the end of the beginning."

    Are we yet at the end of the beginning?

    Anyone know?

    Thanks

    I'd be happy to have 35mm in ISO 100 and ISO 400 E-6 films (I'd even be happy with an ISO 200 emulsion instead of the 400 as long as it's pushable). The suspense is killing me, but in the meantime I'll continue to enjoy the E-6 emulsions available from Fuji and Agfa-Gevaert.

    Oh, and 126 would be nice so long as somebody makes mounts for it!
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.

    From 4/22/14 this post references what I believe is still the most recent blog entry from Ferrania. They are acknowledging their schedule has slipped, but are asking everyone to "stay tuned..."

    I wonder if they may have been forced to reevaluate their anticipated levels of production, given the intense online interest from still photographers, especially E-6 photographers. Originally they were, I believe, going to concentrate on 8/16mm motion picture film. A much smaller market. But with Kodak having tossed in the towel on E-6 and Fuji continuing to contract, interest in their efforts may have been higher than they expected?

    Just speculating. But I wouldn't write them off yet...

    One does not start production just because there is high demand?

    What business logic is behind that conduct (other than cranking up prices) ?

    Well TIP did this and they are doing pretty well...

    And I hope they don't just start with 35mm... I hope they come out with 127 and sheet film sizes, 4x5 and 8x10 as well.

    It would be a shame if they only made 35mm for a long time, I hardly use that these days...

    I believe their original plans may have been to start just with the 8/16mm movie film. They wanted to preserve that medium. I'm guessing the scope may have exploded after that goal went public?

    I'd truly love to see them get to the finish line. Fingers crossed, best wishes, etc.
    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.
