    This is amazing! You sound like the one who knows a lot. Why don't you advice the Italian banks, (with or without the fairly typical European babble) to bet on this fantastic business model (Ferrania for 100 more years!) and tell them to make some money in the process? Do it, if not for being charitable, for the sake of the film future, this forum, its members, the E6 labs etc. etc. Chances are the banks will be impressed even more than I am by "your perspective". If only more of the members could see things as clearly as you do, the film industry would be changed! Oh well, I said it all.

    Well funding has been met! Very interested to see how this film performs, and what Ferrania does in the future.

    Indeed. I hope they do well. My inclination has been to back it on principal even though I don't use slide film. The missus however is skeptical and keeps asking "Did you ever get that camera?!!",meaning of course, the Travelwide. I've tried to help her understand the reasons for the delays but she is just not a 'camera person'. Slide film is very expensive to shoot on a per frame basis so I think that if I wanted to experiment with slide film I'd want something bigger than 35mm and would load up a 120 camera that could shoot in 6X6 format. In the survey they sent I indicated I was always interested in B&W although I don't think they made that even when they were in business years ago.

    I don't use slide film now, but scotch sold decent film I used to use once in a while. 3M rarely makes anything badly.

    When 3M purchased Ferrania colorfilm was the consumers choice. Slidefilm is needed for 8mm and 16mm film shooters. So I understand that their first efforts will be on the positive film production, but if they succeed the negative color film will come and for the B&W there are other sources and if there is space.... why not.

    One year or two more and we'll see.

    My memory could very well be faulty but it seems that the faster Scotch Chrome was favored by hobby astrophotographers when it was current back in the 70's and 80's. A fast medium telephoto and barn door drive could capture some brighter deep sky objects in a 5 to 15 min. exposure time. That was with the 640 ASA (ISO) tungsten balanced material.
