You won't see many Ferrania cameras. Like most Italian cameras it's designed in Milan, it's very rare and very stylish.

Made in 1953, this is a good quality small camera. It's a very simple camera with no controls making it easy to use. The body is cast alloy and finished in black enamel and polished metal, it looks very handsome.

The lens is a Primar 85, it's spring loaded and pushes in to the body when not in use. It uses readily available 120 film adn you get 12 images on a roll. There is no double exposure prevention, so you can take as many multiple exposures as you want.

As you can see from the example on the side-bar, the lens produces contrasty images with a little softness.

The camera shows signs of use, but it's in good condition and fully working. I used it to take the photograph of the bike on the sidebar.

Do please contact me if you have any questions!
