Ghostly

It has such a haunting and gothic vibe. So atmospheric and risky. Would be perfect for spooky Halloween photoshoot.

Bags of contrast

If you want a film with a high contrast, then look no further, P30 gives it you by the truck load, and with very fine grain too.

Paint it Black

Many years ago I used to work in photo processing. I remember one of my bosses saying that the secret of a really good looking print was having really black blacks. When working with digital scans I sometimes increase the black point just to give that little bit of extra "punch" when viewed or printed.

With Ferrania P30 you won't be needing to adjust the black point.

It it is highly contrasty in a good way and provided to take account of that when composing your shots it seems to be able to deliver great results. Exposure for mid tones at 80 ISO worked just fine in my camera. I developed it myself in ID:11 diluted 1:1 in a small Paterson tank dev time 13:30 at 20 degrees and agitating once a minute.

I did a bit of research into Ferrania and discovered that at one time they used to be owned by and make 3M film. My colleagues in the photoprocessing lab claimed 3M film (which accounted for most of the 'own brand' films sold by chemists and other outlets) was a bit less easy to handle than Kodak, Fuji, Konica and Agfa film. I was slightly concerned that P30 might be a bit 'curvy'. Both during loading onto the developing reel and when placing in my negative holder for scanning I did find that the film still wanted to be wrapped around the spool rather than being flat. But once clamped in place it was flat enough to scan perfectly.

The information on Ferrania's web site suggested that there was no DX coding on the cassette and that you'd need to sent the ISO manually. I can confirm that the film I used did have DX coding on it and that my camera read the the film speed correctly at ISO 80.

Perhaps not a film for general purpose use, but deffinetly worth using for some really dramatic old school cinematic looking shots.

black, Black, BLACK!

get creative with this film and play with iso and developing times. I shot these at 50 iso and developed as normal 80 iso. The high silver content coupled with slight over exposure and over development made the blacks very dark indeed. It also made some darker shades of red and brown render as jet black, like the bronze statue I have shared here.
