Bonus manual ■ ↓

First of all, do you have 35mm (135mm) film? Please ask a home appliance store, and if you search on the internet, you will find many. I think there are probably too many types that I don't understand. It is hard to tell the difference between monochrome and color, so be sure to choose a box that has color written in small print on the box. Unless you want to use monochrome... Also, there are two types of film.

●Positive film (also called reversal film) → For professional use (If you don't know the exposure, aperture, and shutter speed accurately, everything will be ruined when you develop it)

●Negative film: For beginners and hobbyists (even if you make some mistakes in exposure, etc., the developer will finish the photo properly later) Positive film is for professional use and is expensive, so it is recommended that you get used to it.
All Instagrammers use negative film. for your information!
Also, the basic operating instructions can be found by searching for the camera name on YouTube or searching for how to load film ☺️!

●How to store negative and positive films

If you buy in bulk, the film will be treated as a living thing, so please store it in the refrigerator ☺️♪ If you store it in the refrigerator, even if the film expires, it will still look good for 1-2 years ^^
What film did you put in your camera? You may be asked, but as long as you put it in a well-ventilated place, it's fine ☺️!

Negative film (approximate types and colors)

●Fuji Film → Transparent and bluish image

Cider-like image (if you want to take a bluish and soft image, use this film)
Discontinued films are still sold at camera stores and online.

◉Commercial film◉
Transparent image, good coloring
(Some camera stores still have discontinued films)

◉C200→New name changed
FUJIFILM200 (3-pack sold only)

The natural and matte look suits Japanese skin, and colors like green are good!

●Kodak → Warm, suitable for people

It's great for people, but it's expensive.

Good image with high contrast

●Lomography → Nostalgic, unique

◉Lomo is available in 3 packs of 100, 400, and 800 at the Lomography Online Store!
Retro-style photos, recommended for beginners
(Lomo 200 is a special film, so we recommend not using it at first.)

There are also films made by foreign film and brand manufacturers.
Most cute film boxes are monochrome, so be sure to ask or check before purchasing ☺️♪

100, 400, 800, 1600, etc. are written on the film box. This is ISO sensitivity. In the film era, ISO sensitivity was called ASA. If you have a single-lens reflex camera, there is an ISO sensitivity setting, so in that case, please set the ISO sensitivity where it says ASA (^^) The higher the ISO sensitivity number, the brighter it is, so when shooting at night or in a dark place, , buy the one with a high number. The easiest to use is 400 film. Also, the higher the number, the rougher it gets! ←Young people these days use higher film grades like 400-800 because it makes the film grainy in a good way. (In the past, ISO 100 film was popular because it was thought that clear images close to digital images were better.) However, when using 800 in a bright place, there may be overexposure, so compact cameras and single-lens reflex cameras have an auto setting that does it automatically. Please be careful if you are not using the camera! (For those who use manual SLR) ← I think it's better to set the F value to around 5.6 to 8 when it's bright (^^)

If the developer is a Kitamura camera, it seems that they will send the photo data to a text message with the phone number. Yodobashi and Big Camera are CDs. Camera Kitamura may have dust in the photos depending on the store, so please be aware that they are conveniently available all over the country. If you want to specify the atmosphere, we recommend the following ☺️!


・Ebisu Camera (nothing else except development)
・Popeye Camera (film cameras for sale, cute miscellaneous goods, straps, etc.)

・Sambo Camera (recommended‼️)
Although it is not a developing shop, there are many types of film and it is cheap ^^
There is a developing shop called monogram about 10 minutes walk away, so I recommend that as well. If you are nearby, please try going along with Sanpo.

●Osaka/Ur6 (Ueroku) camera

・Fuji Color Plaza MMG Sumiyoshi (camera class available)

・Yamamoto Photo Machine Shop (Photographer Hideaki Hamada)


・Diamond Camera Meichikashu store ← Please search for it as it has recently moved (my personal recommendation is for mail-in development ❗️)

Rental film cameras available,
Large variety of films, small store

・memini (miscellaneous goods also available)


・Hibifoto (Daily Photo)

If you send your favorite photo to the line and ask them to develop it in a similar way, they will create a look that is close to your ideal.
A developing shop popular among Instagrammers. Also, it's cheap!
Just bank transfer!
You can specify a bluish feel, a transparent feel, a cherry blossomish feel, etc.
If you want to be particular about it, I think it would be a good idea to send it to the developer mentioned above.
If you live in Tokyo, Nagoya, or Osaka, you can also send it by mail.

●How to store the camera●

Never use closets or closets. It gets moldy and cloudy. Place it in a well-ventilated place, such as on a bookshelf! Please turn off the shutter once a month when not in use. If you are worried, there are moisture-proof cabinets (boxes to put the camera in) available at home appliance stores and online.☺️♪ After taking pictures outside, when you get home, blow out the whole thing with a blower and place the camera on a shelf or in a moisture-proof cabinet. Good☺️! Please enjoy using film cameras (^^)
