A 35mm Film Hard Case Storage Box – So Simple, Yet So Useful . . .

. . . It’s often said that the simplest (and cheapest) things in life are the best and when it comes to my latest Street Photography related purchase, I couldn’t agree more.

Let’s be honest, how many times (and how much time) have us film photographers spent fumbling about in those dark and unexplored regions of our camera bags? Afterall, that fresh and unexposed roll of 35mm film is in there somewhere. However, when it’s rolling about amongst five or more identical cannisters, some exposed and some not, it quickly becomes a frustrating game of ‘lucky dip’. Often the only solution is to empty the whole lot onto whatever ‘unsuitable’ surface presents itself.

But swear and curse no more, for the solution is both ingenious, cheap and simple.

This fantastic little box, available in both black and white (of course) and made from strong plastic, features ten moulded compartments designed to snuggly and securely hold your precious 35mm film and is conveniently covered with a firmly fitting lid.

Measuring just 140 x 62 x 51mm, this case will easily fit into a coat pocket or spare corner of your camera bag and means that all of your unexposed and exposed film is ‘on call’ whenever you need it.

So where can you buy one? On eBay here.

This is easily one of the simplest, cheapest and most useful of my photography purchases. A must buy.

    1. Hi Koen,

      You’re quite right. The equivalant (empty) Japan Camera Hunter box costs more (delivered to the UK) but Bellamy’s do come with the JPH name on the bottom.

      Not saying one is better than the other, just that the box I’ve reviewed here is cheaper to buy.

      Cheers, Kevin
