LIMITED STOCK: test rolls (16 exposures) of Solaris 200 FG Plus 35mm film.

Expiry date : 2013

These are some of the last rolls to come from the original Ferrania factory - Solaris FG Plus was historically a budget colour film produced in Italy to compete with the likes of AgfaVista, Colorplus and C200.

Renowned for colours that were vivid and punchy - and without the slight colour cast common in Fujifilm and Kodak colour films - Solaris FG Plus graced the shelves of Europe for most of the 20th century.

Here is your opportunity to shoot a piece of history!

Please note that we can't guarantee results with any films past expiry date. However we have done spot tests on the batch, and are also reassured by our supplier that they have been in cold-storage over the past years.


Notes from our supplier:

- These rolls are from the last production line ever manufactured by Ferrania, so a cool bit of history

- Expired film is less sensitive to light, so I recommend shooting them 2 stops over-exposed. For all the sample images I shot at 50 ISO

- If you’re using an automatic or point & shoot camera & can’t change the ISO, just ask for it to be pushed a stop or two in development

- Obviously, being expired film, results can vary from roll-to-roll, so perhaps don’t make it your first choice for an extremely important shoot!

- Expect slight colour shifts & increased grain - it will basically make your photos look extra vintage

- But it’s great fun to shoot & to not be totally sure what you will get back - the surprise element of it is one of the best bits for me!

Pleasantly Surprised

I got this in my latest Wonderbox subscription and was a little disappointed to see it was only a 16 frame film. However I actually ended up with 20 frames out of it.
Knowing these films had been batch tested for quality was reassuring.
I shot the film in a Yashica Clearlook point and shoot a friend gave me recently and I was really pleased with the results.
The tones make the photos look "vintage" for want of a better word. I've bought quite a few expired films previously but this is definitely the best I've found.

Expired film is like a box of chocolates.

You never know what you’re going to get, but I have to say I was impressed with what I got out of this roll. I shot it at ISO 50 as recommended with minimal colour shift and grain. The negatives were a little on the dense side, but nothing my scanner couldn't handle. I'm going to have to order another roll or two to see if I can replicate the results or if I was just a lucky winner of the expired film lottery.

Well, it has expired

Well, here is the review of my roll, yours will probably be totally different, it has after all, expired! The shots I took have a good deal of contrast, it handled the highlights but not the shadows, and particularly not the blacks, the darker areas often went to a grainy blue / black - reminiscent of a light leak. But the colour in the highlights is really lovely - it took a good bit of colour adjustment but I was really happy with the results. If I had another roll I would shoot it on a good sunlit day, but I don’t think I will buy another, expired film can be a bit hit and miss, so, to end as I started - that was the review of my roll of film.
