Film News: StreetPan Announcement
Good news everyone. I have sold out of StreetPan! Well, I say good news, but it does mean that I don’t have any available for sale now. So I guess that it is bad news for some. But it is good news really, as it means it was a success.
First of all I would like to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who has supported this idea and believed in StreetPan. The response has been overwhelming and has bowled me over. I could not imagine it would be this popular.
So basically, I have sold out of StreetPan 400 film now. I have none left. But that doesn’t mean that it is all gone, this is not one of those ghastly Fuji(not)film announcements. Basically my sales forecast was that I would sell out by around April, but it seems that you lot like it enough that I sold out at the end of December.
There is another batch in production at the moment, so there will be more coming, but we are going to have to wait April for it to come into stock. In the meantime you can still get the film from a number of places that still have some available (see below).
And this is really good news because it gives me the confidence to continue making the film and to start working on new projects as well (sorry, no spoilers). The support for not just StreetPan, but other brands such as Kodak, Bergger and Ferrania has shown me that the film market is at its strongest point in years. There is a new generation of film photographers who are going to get the chance to shoot films that they thought were no longer accessible.
2017 is going to be an outstanding year for film photography and I hope that it keeps on getting better. Now what we need is someone to make a new film camera, and maybe for Fuji(not)film to step up to the plate and make a commitment for the future of their film.

Thank you to everyone for all of the film love that you have shown me. I love seeing the images shot on StreetPan and I am looking forward to seeing the images people make with the film. And I apologize for making you all wait until April.
