Camera Porn Wednesday

This weeks camera is:

NPC

NPC was a photo products manufacturer based in Newton, Massachusetts, USA. It is no longer active. The name is most associated with a series of backs permitting the use of Polaroid instant peel-apart film with a variety of medium-format camera bodies; this was a vital feature in allowing professional photographers to confirm lighting, composition and exposure on the spot (rather than discovering a problem too late, after the conventional film was developed).

Here’s the anouncement:

Cairo Montenotte (SV), Italy – FILM Ferrania is proud to announce its first product, FERRANIA P30®, in a limited ALPHA edition.

FERRANIA P30® ALPHA reproduces, with modern techniques developed by FILM Ferrania scientists, the exact film that made Ferrania world-famous more than 50 years ago.

With its cinema pedigree, ultra fine grain, and very high silver content, FERRANIA P30® ALPHA has no peers in the modern analog film market.

FILM Ferrania CEO Nicola Baldini said, “Each frame is like a piece of jewellery.” Pasolini, Rossellini, Visconti and many other Italian directors powered their masterpieces with P30 film.

In 1961, Sophia Loren won the Academy Award for “La Cio ciara” ( Two Women) by Vittorio De Sica and the entire world started to appreciate the beauty of FERRANIA P30® . In 1963, the legendary film 8 ½ by Federico Fellini was shot on FERRANIA P30® stock, cementing its place in cinema history.
