My last Viewfinders post was on the Rollei Digibase CR 200, and this time around I’m sharing images of new to me Japan Camera Hunter (JCH) Street Pan 400 120 film. It’s a B&W film that reminds me of Fuji Neopan 400. There is quite a bit of information on JCH Street Pan all over the internet, so I won’t go on with any technical information.
I found this film really shines in low light, which creates moody images with very fine grain. It also does well in bright daytime light, with an impressive dynamic range you can see in the images below. Even though it’s marketed for street photography, don’t let that deter you from using it in other settings. I can’t wait to shoot a couple of rolls for weddings and portraits.
JCH Street Pan 400 is available in 135 and 120 format, directly from Japan Camera Hunter and from a list of other vendors on their website. I got mine at a local store called Glass Key Photo, specializing in used film cameras, film, and darkroom supplies.
