JCH StreetPan 400 35mm High Contrast B&W Film
Our Price: £10.00 GBP100055
The JCH Street Pan 400 film has quickly gained a loyal following from 35mm photographers who love its high-contrast and high-grain feel. Images have an interesting charcoal result without losing the sharpness of the subject, and the emulsion is forgiving on overexposure. When paired with a dark red filter, you’ll find that this high contrast black and white film can also act as an infrared film — with high sensitivity in the IR range.

JCH = Japan Camera Hunter = Bellamy Hunt, a man with the most enviable job in existence. He lives in Japan and spends most of his time sourcing film cameras that are rare, high quality, and in demand across the world. Not satisfied with making people's wildest camera dreams come true, he has recently branched out into producing his own film in 35mm and 120 formats. His Instagram account is one of the most beautiful accounts on the site - and rightly one of the most popular within the analogue world.

This isn't a cheap film, so I was expecting something special. However I can't really see how this differs from many of the other 400 speed films out there.
This could be due to the fact that I developed it in Rodinal (1+25 for 10.5 min) which is my reliable developer. I get mushy results in HP5+ (which many people swear by) and have got similar results with this film too. It didn't have that punchy grainy-but-sharp feeling I get from Double-X, Rollei 400 or Fomapan. Without getting another roll and developing it in something else, I'll never know for sure, but if you home develop in Rodinal it would be interesting to hear your thoughts.
It's also slightly under-exposed the whole roll, so if I were to ever try another box of this, I'd probably shoot it at 320 or even 200. It's one of those "likes light" films.
You can believe the hype! JCH streetpan is beautiful, quite contrasty and easy to develop at home. I was pleasantly surprised by the qualities of this film.
