An image from my second roll of Japan Camera Hunter Street Pan film (the first was shot in what turned out to be a faulty Olympus μ[mju:] II Zoom 80).

So far I definitely prefer this film to the Fuji Neopan 400CN that I have been using recently. The grain isn’t obtrusive and the images are nice and ‘contrasty’ which surprises me given the very flat light the afternoon I wandered around Alligny-Cosne, snapping away while waiting for the boulangerie to open at 4pm…

I’ve got one more roll in stock, I think I’ll shoot it this weekend.
