At times, I get an expired roll or two from my friends. This is the case with a roll of Photosi, a colour print negative, which apparently was produced by Ferrania in the early 2000’s. There is a mention on the box of a company named “Fincolor Group SpA”, which still exists here. The film has expired in Dec. 2006, as the box says. 24 frames on the roll, at an ISO of 200. The box is really glittery, and I hope the film will retain some of these shiny shades.
Loaded in a Nikon camera, an FM3A, and set the ISO at 100. Processing was of course C41 and scanning the frames was my doing, on a Plustek 7200. The results are here, for what is worth.
The film appears not have been great to start with; I very much doubt I would’ve used this film when fresh, if I had other choices. Clearly a cheap consumer product, good for snapshots or whatever, but not a good film to shoot valuable moments. I mean it’s not that bad, colours still retained a good amount; given the time passed since its expiration date, still good for a few candid photographs, if not much else.
