Japan Camera Hunter Film Case news
New cases, new colours and more. Come and find out where you can get yours.
The JapanCameraHunter film cases have been really popular and it is cool to see them all over the world, especially when people have customised them and made them into their own personal little cases. But recently I have been thinking, they could do with a little something….something brighter and energetic. And that was about the time I met Vishal from CameraFilmPhoto.
Vishal had the idea that he wanted to make film cases in CFP blue, to celebrate the opening of CFP. I had wanted to make my own colour cases for a while.
So we decided to make two colour cases, one for each site. The red for JCH, as red seems to be a bit of an unofficial colour for JCH. And blue to celebrate the start of business for CameraFilmPhoto, as blue is their official colour scheme. CFP has since made a Yellow case too.
The cases are made out of the same high quality plastic as the original cases, with a nice snug fitting top. And they have the JapanCameraHunter mark stamped on the base (beware of cheap crappy imitations being sold on ebay etc). These cases are made in Japan, for a number of reasons, mainly that I want to support local economy and industry.
You can get the red cases exclusively here on JCH. But you have to go over to CameraFilmPhoto to get the blue or Yellow cases, as they are exclusive to CFP. You can get them in their shop http://www.camerafilmphoto.com/product-category/accessories/film-case/
You can get your JCH cases by clicking below. And remember, 10 cases gets you a free case and combining orders makes for cheaper shipping.
Supporting these film cases helps support the site so that I can bring you more cool content and more cool gear. It also helps me to develop new cases too.
Ps. Tell us what colours you want to see next, you never know, it could happen.
I’m actually living in Japan near Tokyo, is there anywhere I could buy one of these and so avoid the postage?
I’ll be visiting Tokyo in May, and would also love to be able to buy a few of the 35mm film cases locally. Any solution for us, Bellamy?
I have been trying to find a supplier in Tokyo, but it seems none of them want to deal with the cases. Mainly because they either don’t want to deal with foreigners, or because they try to overcharge for the cases. At the moment the only option is if I am actually in town at the time.
Afraid of foreigners? I figure with almost everyone wanting to go to Japan, they have no fears of dealing with foreigners if it meant more business.
I wonder if you mean 10 cases of any type or 10 cases of same type…
I would like to see a 5 roll case for 35mm film. Just like your current 10 roll case, but only 1 row of 5. :-). I know, I know… I sound like a broken record player.
I agree with Scott W, I often carry five rolls, never ten.
Do the cases come full of Neopan Super Presto? ;)
I like both theme colors and want to support the web. IMO, I like to carry a smaller case for 135 in my Billingham. As for one day street photography, I might need 3-4 rolls max. I will use the 10 roll case for a short trip or wedding job.
I’m going to second this, either a 4 (2×2), 5 (5×1), or 6 (2×3) size cases for the 135 size. 10 is good for a weekend or a dedicated shooting day, but too big for those days when you just take your camera with you. A smaller one would be a great addition.
Keep up the good work, loving it.
I am working on these at the moment. I am hoping to have something available soon.
Awesome! Glad to hear it! I currently carry the 10 roll case for 135 format and its great…but would love something more like the 5 roll 120 format case as I rarely need that much film with me. It’s awesome how successful these cases have been!
I agree with Michael: 4 (2×2), 5 (5×1) or 6 (2×3) size for the 135 case would be amazing. Thanks for your work Bellamy!
I’m also thinking a pocketable 3×1 case for 35mm would be great! There are of course lots of options possible! Thanks again.
I like the color versions of my already used black boxes. But what really caught my eye is this incredibly georgeous looking Leica in front of these cases. Can’ t stop thinking of it…. :-)
How about a 10 roll case of 5x 120 and 5x 35?? Oh and clear plastic?
LOVE the new colors, esp the blue. Unfortunately, the shipping from Germany to USA (VA) is almost $30. I hope more colors come in the future! Maybe aluminum or glow in the dark?!
Any chance that a transparent orange version is coming out?
You should definitely do 2 color ones (or striped):
Black and white
Green and white
Red and yellow
to celebrate Ilford, Fujifilm and Kodak ;D
Ordered a red 120 and a black 135 two weeks ago and just got them in the mail! Great quality plastic and the fitting between the lid and container is excellent. Highly recommended!
Is there any possibility to make them X-ray proof? Like a lead coating or something? That would be fantastic in my opinion. Great product by the way, and I’d be in for a smaller sized 35mm case as well.
Post to the UK on these is so high, $29 just for post for something so small & cheap is crazy :(
It shouldn’t be that much unless you are buying quite a few. Unfortunately I have no control over the postage prices, sorry.
You should make a limited edition of the 135 cases in a smaller size.
A little square case that would take 4 rolls, would be perfect for smaller bags or a walk around the city.
I would love to buy a Kodak Yellow 120 and 135 case (so I can help the site), but sadly the shipping is minimally the amount of the cases themselves, which makes the total a bit hefty. You should find a good distributor in Europe! Grobet is the largest Belgian photoshop with a passion for analog photography, maybe get in touch with them?
Just rechecked, and a Yellow 135 case is 10$, whilst shipping is 28.72$, thus a total of 38.72 for a single case. A bit too expensive :)
Get in touch with Maco Direct, I believe they are distributing the cases in Europe now.
Hi bellamy, i am a fan and i have bought your half case bundle double x. Yes the shipment is quite costly, but i love the case so much. Thank u
I’d love to see a Kawasaki Green… :D
