Film Filma

This model dates from 1935. At this time, the Ferrania company does not exist. The company that manufactures it is still called  Film Capelli Ferrania. It was not until 1938 that it became Ferrania in remembrance of the city of origin, although the company is based in Milan.

The same device will be sold also under the brand Ferrania. It is therefore a pivotal unit, but as the design date from the FILM era, it is better to classify it as a Film production.
We note a certain resemblance with the Bencini devices. It is probably due to the fact that the founder of Bencini worked in collaboration with the FILM.
 
It should be noted that the side covering on the presented specimen is not original.
