Re: Ferrania to re-start film production

This sounds like good news; however a quick look at the "news" section reveals that the last post is dated July 27, 2013, more than one year ago.

Are you visiting some other LF forums Natürlich! Same as Martin Jan Köhler, plus, of course, the French MF+LF forum. http://www.galerie-photo.info/forumgp/index.php But our French forum is more permissive and allows to discuss also about medium format film and full-frame digital 35-mm (24x36 mm dig...
