    I just hope they price it reasonably, it can't compete at the same price as FUJI.

    Keep it under $6 USD a roll and I will buy at least 20 rolls a year.

    I will buy it if it is cheaper than Fiji significantly in 4x5 sizes ... Assuming it has good color saturation.

    If its good for skin I'll shoot Ferrania for people and Fuji for mountains and landscapes.

    I might consider using Ferrania E6 products if I am given a few samples to test and QC. I certainly do not rely on company or corporate spin about how good a product is. A lot of money has been wasted like that. You go to their party, they give you the cake. Then eat it and tell them about it. The world too. At the moment, there is no competition for Fujfilm's E6 emulsions and they do the job well — for now. I would be very, very surprised if there is any other company out there planning to stand tall alongside Fujifilm in anything from consistent quality to the nuance of colour palette and contrast. We'll have to sit back and watch what eventuates.

    I use to buy the 3M film (employee discount) and it was garbage. Very green cast. Even if it was free you would not want it. Hopefully, this will be better.

    Their blog post states it was the Imation version of Scotch Chrome they are basing it on and not the 3M version.

    They state it's being 're-engineered' but the datasheet for the Imation Scotch Chrome already indicates good colour.

    I hope it's a success and then they try to re-engineer Scotch Chrome 1000

    Don't forget that Ferrania may be able to economically coat much lower quantities than Kodak or Fuji. We may or may not like Ferrania's products when they are released, but chances are that they will be the only game in town when they hit the market.
    Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.

    3M once bought Ferrania. Later in that period 3M named their imaging department "Imation".

    "The new film is a re-engineered version of the Scotch Chrome 100 previously produced by the IMATION company and it does not have anything in common with the old 3M slide film from '70s"
