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.

I recently took this to the Lake District and it saved so much room in my bag. 5 rolls is enough for one day of shooting. I’ve heard complaints that the plastic film pots that film come in when you buy them are more waterproof than this holder but I had a waterproof bag so it wasn’t a problem. I see this holder as a space saver, I popped the box and plastic pot in the recycling and was left with 5 rolls of film that took up no space.
Got this as part of the awesome Analogue Wonderland reward programme and I'm really happy I did. It's not something I thought I would use that often but I've found it great for storing exposed rolls while out shooting. I haven't used it for storing new rolls as I prefer to keep them in the pots and boxes until needed. While it's really only for use with 35mm if you only have a couple of rolls in there you can fit a roll of 120 on its side too (see pic). Some folks saying the lid is a bit loose but mine is rock solid. All in all a handy addition to my bag.
It's made out of sturdy material, I'm happy with that. But I can't seem to get every day use out of it.
The case will only fit 35mm film canisters that have been removed from their pots. The pot lids provide a tighter and more secure fit than the case, so I don't tend to use the case. If the case fitted 35mm films inside their pot I would probably use it more to provide extra protection while hiking, but as it is I don't take it anywhere.
The lid of the case fits snugly but not tightly - as others have recommended I would suggest a rubber band around the lid if it's going in your backpack.
It's a good concept but since it only fits 35mm film without it's pot I really don't use it that much. If it was able to fit 35mm film including the pot, although it would be bulkier, I would be quite happy to take it around with me. As it is though, it just seems to sit on my shelf.
So I got this an part of the reward program and I think it's awesome, I like to keep my camera bag tidy and this film hold really does help. I decided to have a little fun with it and paint the lid the Kodak colours, overall I can see myself buying a couple more of these.
One other thing is some people are saying the lid is loose but I don't seem to be having trouble with this one it stays on firmly Soni think it comes down to the molding of the item.
Ok full disclosure, I received my one as part of the Analogue Wonderland reward program so I only parted with money for the shipping.
I can see the idea of this. Its certainly more pocketable than keeping 5 rolls of 35mm in your pocket/bag/insert storage option here...in the boxes or even their plastic tubs.
My problem is that I like to see straight away what i've put in my bag, and using this case means that I have to take the lid off, and sometimes even take the film out to see the label. Small issue nonetheless and I know that that will not bother everybody.
I have read that some don't like the fit of the lid, although I will state that mine is fine and hasn't managed to fall off yet - but thats what rubber bands are for aren't they...?
Maybe two would be a good setup, one in one colour for unexposed film one in a different colour for exposed?
Or maybe a black one for your b&w and coloured one for your colour film?
4 Star rating. Theres nothing wrong with it at all, its just not really for me. Still, go get one and support AW and JCH.
