UPDATE to The P30 Kickstarter Program

Posted by FILM Ferrania (Creator)

Ciao a tutti!

It has been 6 days since we unveiled FERRANIA P30® ALPHA to the world, and the response has been truly amazing!

As we write this, 75% of you have opened the email we sent with the personalized link to our "smart form" that allows you to choose a reward option, and also update your shipping address. We now have just over 2100 responses to the smart form.

This is great progress in a short time, but with over 5,000 backers, we still have a long way to go.

We've fielded hundreds of questions asking about one thing or another related to this customized email and the offer in general. We have made a new page to answer the most common questions. If you don't find a solution on that page, please email us directly at

We are trying our very best to make sure EVERY SINGLE BACKER has received the email and completed this special form. This special offer lasts only 8 more days, so please act now.

Meanwhile, in Italy...

      Hi Ferrania!
      I left a comment to the Facebook page and sent an email to the help address as I have not received your email.
      Can you please reach out for me?
      Thanks and... keep pushing :)

      Dear Ferrania Team,

      No email for me. How can I get B&W films instead of the original rewards? How many 35mm film for my participation? Thanks for your help. See you.

      I hope that in time, the Ferrania P30 box and logo are as iconic as those of Tri-x and HP5.....and come to think of it, all the others too! Forza!

      Yes, a very long journey - but everyone could easily follow this journey due to the excellent communcation!

      And I am so excited - boxes and cartriges are ready :) In the end there will be some film in these. Wish you all the luck and keep up the ggod work!

      @Andreas Steubs (and any others with the same question) - YES, at the end of the 14-day "exchange" period, we will send a new email to all backers with details about when/where/how to buy film, as well as a custom coupon code to apply at checkout.

      @Vincent Huber: We wanted to give backers an opportunity to "end the pain" of the wait and we also felt the need to show everyone that we CAN actually make film - that the long wait has actually been productive. Most critically, after two years, we very much need to move our Backer database out of Kickstarter, where we have no way to make changes - and into a form where we have control and can make updates for Backers when they request them. This was our motivation - and considering that less than 10% of our 5000+ backers have expressed any kind of confusion, we consider our decision to be a good one.

      I opted for the original reward. But I would like to get my hands on the 5 rolls of P30 film. I did not get any info on how to get the film at the reduced rate. Is this information still coming?

      Dave, there is something here that doesn't make much sense. The best thing for Film Ferrania is for backers to stay on their original rewards and buy the P30-alpha film, which is clearly your preferred outcome. I think most backers would be ecstatic with just receiving an invitation to buy 5 packs of P30, and surely enough would take advantage of that offer to sell out any test coatings. Moreover, the difference between a reward being 24 and 28 months late is pretty insignificant. So, why add extra steps and introduce unnecessary confusion? Maybe if you're not getting the response you hoped for, it's because your motivation is unclear, which in turn makes it difficult for some backers to evaluate what in their best interest.

      I'm excited to get this! I'd be even more exciting if you confirmed that (eventually) it'd be coming to 120, or even *gasp* 4x5??!

      You folks have certainly had one of the most challenging journeys that I've followed, but you've kept good communication, thank you!
