Ferrania P30 has a long and storied history. The most lauded Italian directors of the mid-20th century shot many of their most iconic movies on P30 stock.

The Film Ferrania team has recreated the formula for the modern stills film shooter, achieving a silver-rich 80 ISO B+W 35mm film stock that provides high-contrast negatives with deep, rich shadows, punchy, sharp highlights, and almost no visible grain.
