Bellamy Hunt “Japan Camera Hunter” was invited to Metro Gallery Auckland to speak about everything film photography including collecting cameras, his own stunning JCH 400 film and the unique customization of cameras. Leica also brought along a collection of gear for a hands on experience earlier in the day which sadly I couldn’t attend.
I did get to shoot a with a 262 monochrome before the talk and afterwards my friend Richard & I were inspired and went on a quick walk around the city with his Leica M6 and the JCH Streetpan 400 for some street photography. I had my Fujifilm X100T with me to take some snaps along the way.
Surprisingly Bellamy gave me a roll of his JCH 400 after the talk so will be looking forward to loading it into my Nikon F3 soon!
