35mm BW Film - Film Ferrania P30 (1 Roll)
1 Roll / 35mm / 36 exp / ISO 80 / Non-DX Coded / Process: Standard BW
Ferrania P30 ALPHA was the first batch manufactured in Film Ferrania's rebuilt factory on the grounds of the original company, in Cairo Montenotte, Italy.
Each roll features a very high silver content to create a high-contrast film with almost no visible grain. Shadows are deep and rich. Highlights are punchy and sharp.
USING P30 - THE BASICS
1. Use a manual camera
Ferrania P30 is not DX coded. As such, we highly recommend using a fully manual 35mm camera - or at least a camera that gives you some control over either ISO, aperture or shutter speed. Cameras with no manual ISO setting will most likely default to ISO 100 which will give you usable results.
2. Shoot at 80 ISO
We firmly recommend shooting this film at the box speed of 80 ISO. (#ShootBoxSpeed)
3. Hand processing is best
P30 is a unique film, and we have found hands-on processing to yield the most consistent results. Listed below are developers and techniques we recommend for a small tank environment.
4. Lab processing is ok, too
