Film News: StreetPan Announcement
More good news on the film front. The second batch of JCH StreetPan is coming along nicely. I have just been informed that it will be ready by the end of March, so shipping should commence in April.

The demand has been so high that I am opening pre-orders again so you can make sure you get your StreetPan fix as quickly as possible. I have been overwhelmed by the response StreetPan has received and it gives me great delight to tell you that there will be much more to come.

I have been bombarded with mails asking when there will be more available and other formats, so I have been working hard to make these a reality. The first step is the next batch of 135, and then the next step is 120 format.

You can pre-order through the store on this site. Your order will be shipped as soon as the film comes in stock. You will receive a shipping notification when it ships. I am told it will be ready and available for shipping in mid April. The film shall reach the stores a little bit later as it has to go through different channels, but it will be available through all the regular outlets and hopefully some new ones too.

Once we get this batch of StreetPan into the stores we are going to start working on the new 120 film. Which will be available later this year. It is all go go go at JCH HQ.

It has been really exciting to see people all over the world shooting with StreetPan. You can see some great examples on instagram by checking the tags #JCH400 #JCHStreetpan and #streetpan
It is inspiring to see so many people enjoying the film. I love to see peoples work so make sure you tag yours when you share it.

 

You can get your pre-order through the shop

    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

    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.

    Kudos!
    Btw on fuji, glad to see they started that film instagram account. Dunno if it’s just for show but they seem to use it to push 400h mostly

    Congratulations. TBH, I doubted you at first. But I shot my first rolls over the New Year’s holiday, and HEY! it was pretty good. HC-110 looks like a good developer for this film; pleasing grain, nice sharpness and solid contrast. What’s not to like, right! It makes a nice complement to Rollei Retro 80s, which is simply my favorite film.

    One request: Please try to find a way to bring it to market in 120. My Rolleiflex is jealous.
