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.

    Nikon FM10 Vivitar 3800 by cosina Leica M7 and MD Voigtlander still being made right? You should sell these regularly I think because some wants a current production one. Starting point for people wanting to try film.

    Dear JCH,
    Congratulations! You took a chance, took a big leap and it paid off. I wish you more success in the future. I know it’s hard work. You’ve help keep the industry alive.

    I’ve always shot film. I’ve got a darkroom that I use regular basis. Many times in the past 15 years or so, I felt I was about the only one still working with film. Countless, well meaning people took the time to point out the error of my ways by sticking with film. Now, as I see film becoming re-established (and manufacturers re-tooling production lines) , it’s like coming out of the darkness into light.

    I’ve never been a Luddite. I scan my negs, tweak them in P/S and upload to my flickr account. But, I also take those selfsame negatives, pop them into my enlarger, and make prints. But, I want to decide when & where to dip my toes into technology/digital, not some company in Silicon Valley making that decision for me.

    I like to point out than when Illustrator came upon the market, artist didn’t throw away their paints, pencils, paper and other materials. Artists just scooted a bit down the bench and made room for the new media. Photographers/Manufacturers/Photo press decided to take out the long knives and tried to kill off film. Not all; thanks to Ilford, Foma, JCH, et al, saw and proved that film could exist side-by-side with digital. It shouldn’t be an adversarial co-existence.

    So thanks to Bellamy and others that worked hard to keep the interest in film alive, to the many ‘fellow travelers’ who never gave up shooting film, and to the manufacturers who had the courage to continue making film, enlarging paper & chemistry.

    Congratulations Bellamy, it’s a great film and I’m enjoying using it. When can we start placing pre-orders on the supply coming in April?

    Congratulations! Just bought three rolls from Mapcamera. Any plans for a 120 release…? :D

    Eric January 12, 2017 at 10:14 am / Reply

    Congratulations. I am expecting 5 rolls to arrive any day. Looking forward to your next project. Maybe you will create a unique film stock.

    This is both great and bad news. Good for you, Bellamy. I hope this means 120 in the future and 100′ spools of 35mm. Both would probably do extremely well for you.
