Being a 1950s Movie Star – In Cambridge with Ferrania P30 – By Iain McGlinchey

“Shoot some cine film” that little voice in my head said.
“You know you want to”.
Well, I’ve shot a fair bit of Cinestill and enjoyed it.
“Remember that roll of Ferrania P30 in the fridge that you’ve been too scared to use?”

5 Frames with Ferrania P30 – By Peter Schafer

OK, I got a little carried away there. I don’t actually think mine was the last roll of Ferrania Solaris 100 in the whole world, but – alas – it was the last one in my possession.The story goes like this: a couple of years ago, when I started shooting film, I bought a batch of Ferrania Solaris 100 color negative film. The film expired in 2006 and was practically being given away for free, so I figured it would be a good, inexpensive way of training myself to film photography before starting to shoot more “serious” film. So, I absent-mindedly went through the first roll and sent it over to the lab for development, without worrying too much about the results.
