I use to shoot ferrania film quite a bit when it was still readily available in, of all places, the pound shop. ‘Solaris 200’ use to sit along side ‘agfa vista 200’, while gainer than the latter it was better for colours with deep blues that ‘popped’ out. It was, at one time, my favourite colour film, even coming with me on trips.
Keeping this short, this new film is the black and white p30, they have recently produced and sold. It was delayed a little, much to the annoyance of many. I got 5, and gave 3 away to friends. Share the wealth.
Here are a few snapshots using the film. First thoughts are that it isn’t as forgiving as most films, lot of blown highlights. Using a yellow filter the contrast is high. Its a distinctive look.
The film was developed in rodinal APH 09 1 + 50 for 8 minutes. One minute agitation at start then 1 per minute thereafter.
