I am currently sat in Champ Camera, it has taken me almost 2 hours to get here from where I was in Tokyo. I don’t mind, I could read a book on the journey. I have been following them on Instagram and thought while I am relatively close I will visit. Basically, it would have bugged me not to visit.
They have a great collection of films with books of sample photos, great idea.
The junk section really is junk and not worth the trip for me. But they have a small, reasonably priced selection of film cameras.
The best thing though, is that I am writing this blog post while waiting for a film to be developed. It will take 30 minutes. I just went to Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara and I have to wait 8 hours for those. In fact they wanted me to return tomorrow, which I can’t as I fly out. I should have trusted my instincts and brought them all here. Though, some of the films I left at Yodobashi were Kodak not Fuji, that always seems to cause an issue.
So I didn’t buy any cameras at champ, but I got some film – off the shelf APS.
Champ is a friendly shop, with interesting film if you are looking for something different. It is not as convenient as Suzuki Camera in Yokohama Station, but worth a trip if you are nearby and love film.
