By Paul McKay

The festive bells are ringing, so we've looked in detail at the Christmas offerings for you wonderful film photographers!

Whether it's a gift for yourself or for a loved one - hopefully you'll find something fun, exciting and affordable within the below ideas.


Christmas Film Selection Boxes!

Back for another year! These are hand-picked curated selection boxes containing some of our top-selling films and packaged with one of JapanCameraHunter's gorgeous film cases. Choose from either red or green (mmm festive!) and feel confident that the recipient will be delighted by a choice of top-quality fresh films. Plus some chocolate coins because...Christmas!

Home-Developing Kits

Do you - or someone you know - want to start developing your own film? Not only fun, but a big cost-saving versus sending off to a lab! We've got a couple of starter kits to get you on your way - one with the hardware, and another with chemicals included as well.

Festive Products

We have a couple of Christmas-specific items as well. First up is Revolog's Snovlox film: pre-exposed with falling snowflakes to guarantee a White Christmas on all your images :-)

And second is a Yulechrome photography pin - made by ShootFilmCo and with all profits from the sale going to charity.

Pins, Patches, Keyrings and Stickers

We have an extensive range of lovely collectables and accessories for brightening up camera straps, rucksacks and winter coats :-) Maybe a camera pin to celebrate their favourite photography machine, or one of the ShootFilmCo patches declaring the wearer' love for film!

We have a small collection of new film cameras - produced by Lomography, Solarcan, Ilford and more. They range from the simple-use cameras that can be reloaded with any 35mm film, to the unique Solarcan solargraphy cameras for long-term (i.e. 6 month) exposures of the sun, to the fun of the LomoMod - a medium format DIY camera with a liquid lens!

All of them are great additions to a camera collection and will produce wonderful analogue images. (For someone who might appreciate a special detective challenge, have a look at the Mystery Camera!)

Film Cameras



We have two very special First Issues: one from Analog Forever, and another from Photoklassik International. They are exceptional quality: in both the written content and also the print finish and included photography. Ideal inspiration for film photographers of all levels - and I promise that you'll learn new techniques and ideas as you read!

Pentax 17 Camera Review: A Modern Wonder

Pentax 17 Camera Review: A Modern Wonder

The Pentax 17 film camera has arrived! I've been lucky enough to be involved in the testing of the camera, and can now share my experience. How does the camera feel in my hand, what do its different settings mean, how does it perform in different lighting situations, and what are the results with different films? I’ve put thorough multiple rolls and taken literally hundreds of sample photos with the Pentax 17 so we have lots of images to learn from. Let’s get started!
Summer of Phoenix - A Holiday in Greece

Summer of Phoenix: A Holiday in Greece

I spent last week on the Greek coast - the southern tip of the Peloponnese to be exact - and took the opportunity to shoot some Harman Phoenix 35mm film! While it was brilliant fun to test it through the dark winter days when it first launched in December 2023, I've been waiting to see it shine in the sun.

A Glimpse into Stereoscopy: Two Views, One Camera
