Every single film stock still made today – Part 3: ILFORD to Japan Camera Hunter

Welcome to part three of this series exploring every single film photography stock still being made today. I’ve covered 58 stocks so far and part three covers an additional 14, bringing our running total to 72 – the halfway point. If this is your first time here, I’d suggest you go and check out part one (ADOX to DUBBLEFILM) and part two (Ferrania to Hillvale).

With both Kodak and Lomography films being featured in part four, we’re looking at a bumper next edition but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. In this article, you will find the same listing structure from part one and two below. Once again, the format is as follows:

  • ADOX >> ADOX CHS 100 Type II
  • ILFORD (Harman Technology) >> ILFORD HP5 PLUS
  • ILFORD (Harman Technology) >> Kentmere 400
  • Fujifilm >> Fujifilm Velvia 50 (RVP)

With regard to any uncredited sample images below, they are all my own and exist in one form or another as Daily Photos, or part of articles written by yours truly for this website.

Here’s what’s covered in part three:

  2. How did we get from Kentmere to Japan Camera Hunter without passing by Kodak, or will that be a chapter of its own?

    • It’s an ILFORD/HARMAN product (see the listing format description at the top of the article!)
