    New Color Film Negative and Slide Production in 2014

    Saw this posted on Thom Hogan's site..... Ferrania is saying they will start ISO 100 negative and reversal film production by early 2014.

    I've never heard of them but any news of new film production is encouraging.

    They said they're only putting out what the market requests? Well, put me down for all of it! I'm a collector and getting film for some of these things is unimaginably hard in my position. Hah.

    Ferrania is a "old" Italian company. Many of the movies in the fifties have been filmed with ferrania BW rolls.
    Here is a sample. http://www.antoniodecurtis.com/piovaro.htm

    I don't consider this good news I used Ferrania E6 slide films 20 odd years ago and they were crap almost as bad as ORWO, not in the same ball park as Kodak and Fuji.

    I did a search on Flickr and found a dedicated group for Ferrania Solaris film. As expected, lots of poor scans and/or exposures but a few good scans scattered around. Hard to tell much about the film though since most of the images are reduced in size considerably and who knows what kind of post processing was done. The shots seem to be mostly 200 and 400 Solaris film.

    Based on what I've seen on Flickr I will try a few rolls when it comes out just to see. It's nice to have options.

    A little harsh, considering we're down to one E6 producer (plus the repacked Agfa aerial stuff which, with respect to the company concerned, hasn't yet been established as an ongoing reliable product), we might be glad that someone has enough faith to at least try to reintroduce an option. And it doesn't follow that any new Ferrania product will be the same as 20 odd years ago?

    (And, actually, it would be rather nice if the Orwo factory was still in production rather than being a big area of waste ground. )

    Within the limits of the scans, etc., there's some nice, and well-seen, shots on there.
