Lynn, thanks for the suggestion... Ferrania P30 is now on the list.

The packaging for Ferrania P30 seems a bit odd... the notation on the box is: "ASA 80".
This old designation is "American Standards Association", an organization renamed in 1969 to ANSI: "American National Standards Institute". But film speed nowadays uses the ISO notation (numerically the same as ASA).
ISO - "International Organization for Standardization"

And also the old German standards notation for film speed is no longer used... DIN for "Deutsches Institut für Normung" which was commonly seen on film boxes back in the day. Still, I see a box of Ilford XP2 Super in my fridge noting the film speed as 400/27° with that last bit of course being a DIN number.
