Japan Camera Hunter 120 film cases
JCH 120 film cases are here! And they are awesome! It has been a long time waiting, time to introduce you to the newest member of the JCH family…
It has taken many months of agonizing delays, changes and modifications, but finally the 120 cases are here. I won’t go into the details, but suffice to say I didn’t want to release the cases until I was totally sure that they were ready for all you film lovers out there. But, I finally worked out all of the problems and now I am ready to share them with you all. The Japan Camera Hunter 120 film case.
Many people mailed me and asked me to make the 120 cases after I made the 135 cases. The response I had to the 135 cases was absolutely amazing, so I decided to make the 120 cases too. I thought it would be an easy task, oh how wrong I was.
These have been funded and developed by me, no kickstarters or anything like that. I paid for the moulds to be made from my own pocket. I have made them as I feel it is important to show the world that we Believe in Film.
The 120 film case is nothing new, in fact Fujifilm produced them for a long time. But not like these. These are based on the classic design, but there are a few changes. For a start, these are made from high quality impact resistant (to a certain degree) plastic. At the moment they are piano black, but there will be other colours coming soon.
There are also a few additions to the design….
The Japanese Kanji for 1 to 5 on the top plate. Originally it was stamped with numbers, but I thought this might be a cool twist on that. Plus you get a free Japanese lesson.
Made in Japan on the base. It is important to me that these are made in Japan and not outsourced. That way I can guarantee the quality and I can support small business too. Everyone wins.
I now have the final models and the cases are now in production for me. They will be ready for shipping around the 18th of July. So, what I have decided to do is run pre-orders, that way everyone can get their order in and I will have a better idea of how many I should be making. If you make an order, your cases will be shipped as soon as I get them in stock after the 18th.
*This is a pre-order!*

Please note, the ‘Buy Film Not Megapixels’ stickers are not mine. I cannot supply them with the case. If you want some you can get the from the wonderful GradeSelect.
What’s the difference between the 120 Bikkuri and the regular 120 (aside from the price)?
The bikkuri cases are filled with a grab bag of film. It is a surprise of film in your case.
Great!! I was looking forward to these and I like your approach for sourcing locally.
Doh! Figured it out from the order page. Bikkuri comes with a film assortment.
Put in my order for 4 cases. Been lusting for these for ages and your teasers damn near drove me crazy. Well played, sir.
I’ve been waiting for these for ages. You’ve made a few people here in Norway very happy. Mostly me, but what can you do :)
Thanks very much
Yes to that, thanks Bellamy-san.
Just put in an preorder. Been looking forward to these ever since you said you’re looking into producing them.
Actually those are Chinese words but yes, number from 1 to 5.
I wonder what’re the name of the 400iso film in the mono case, it’s unbranded and I have no idea how to process it. Is there a list of the potential film brands you put in the cases? Thx!
