We're over the moon to announce our latest additions to the Analogue Wonderland B&W range: Ferrania P30 in 120 format, and the all-new Ferrania Orto 35mm film.

 


 

Ferrania P30 120 Film: Elevate Your Medium Format Game

 

Following the roaring success of Ferrania P30 in 35mm, we present to you Ferrania P30 120 film – a medium format marvel. This exquisite panchromatic ISO 80 B&W emulsion-based film draws inspiration from the mid-20th-century cinema formula, promising high-contrast negatives with barely a hint of visible grain.

Whether you're a seasoned medium format pro or just starting out on your analogue adventure, the new Ferrania P30 120 film is your golden ticket to capturing stunning images bursting with depth and character. Its knack for bringing out deep shadows and sharp highlights ensures that every frame tells a unique and unforgettable story.

 


 

Ferrania Orto 35mm Film: A Nod to Timeless Elegance

 

A loving tribute to the classic orthochromatic style that defined an era. Crafted using the same historic 20th Century cinema formula, this low-light 50 ISO film brings you 36 exposures of pure photographic joy.

What makes Ferrania Orto 35mm a standout? It's all about that high silver content and subtle grain. Together, they work their magic to capture dreamy, atmospheric images bursting with rich contrast and character. Think back to the early days of silent cinema when film stocks were sensitive to blue light – that's orthochromatic in action. Hollywood used cosmetics to "fix" actors' appearances on screen back then. Today, these very "imperfections" are the artistic quirks that give contemporary orthochromatic films their unique charm.

Pentax 17 Camera Review: A Modern Wonder

The Pentax 17 film camera has arrived! I've been lucky enough to be involved in the testing of the camera, and can now share my experience. How does the camera feel in my hand, what do its different settings mean, how does it perform in different lighting situations, and what are the results with different films? I’ve put thorough multiple rolls and taken literally hundreds of sample photos with the Pentax 17 so we have lots of images to learn from. Let’s get started!

Summer of Phoenix: A Holiday in Greece

I spent last week on the Greek coast - the southern tip of the Peloponnese to be exact - and took the opportunity to shoot some Harman Phoenix 35mm film! While it was brilliant fun to test it through the dark winter days when it first launched in December 2023, I've been waiting to see it shine in the sun.
