Japan Camera Hunter Introduces StreetPan 400 Black & White Film

Posted by Mike Padua in 35mm, film, news

Japan Camera Hunter StreetPan 400

In a world where megacorporations like Fujifilm want out of the film business, and the makers of Betamax and the MiniDisc are selling you a new digital camera with higher megapixels and faster frames per second every six months, one man has introduced a new film:

Japan Camera Hunter has announced JCH Street Pan 400 black & white film!

Not merely a repackage, but a resurrected emulsion developed, and since discontinued, by Agfa, Street Pan 400 is available for preorder now in 10 packs, and expected to ship in May or June.

Because it is made in small batches at a considerable cost, Japan Camera Hunter needs support and preorders so that he can produce higher batches at lower cost in the future.

I personally pulled out my wallet and placed my order the minute I learned about it, and I can't wait to try it out!

Lens Fungus Solution

Posted by Mike Padua in Gear, Lenses, Tips
From our buddy Zach of Zach Smith Photography comes this handy tip for those who have fungus issues with their lenses:
"I got an Olympus Zuiko 50mm 1.8 that had an enormous spot of fungus right in the center, and didn't feel like disassembling it. So I had the idea of soaking a few cotton balls in 70% isopropyl alcohol and sticking them in a plastic bag exposed to a black light for UV radiation for a week. Lo and behold, a week later almost all of the fungus is gone and looks like it was never there!"
Whether you're out at garage sales and thrift stores and find a cheap lens with fungus, or you've got an old classic form Grandpa's basement that you can attempt to salvage, give this trick a shot and let us know your results.

While this has worked for many people, there are naturally no guarantees, so try this at your own risk!
