Drowning In Film

September 22, 2011 3 comments

Since moving to Tokyo a month ago, one of the photography related things I’ve been really pleased to see is the abundance of ‘high street’ shops where you can go in and select from a large range of film *off the shelf*! This is stark contrast to the UK where buying film would always involve putting together an online order and waiting days for the film to arrive.

Here’s a photo of the film refrigerator at Yodobashi Camera in Shinjuku.


Amazing! And the cool thing is that all the emulsions are stocked in all formats – 35mm, 120, 4 x 5, 8 x 10….

The only shadow-y cloud hanging over this film heaven is the recent announcement from Fuji about cuts they’re making in their film ranges. Whether or not the steady erosion of available film types will continue into the future remains to be seen over the next few years…

Saw this linked on Matrixsynth today. It has kind of a Streethawk vibe to it – just fantastic!
