Take that, now wind it back. We finally sell film cameras, stocks, and meters. Everything you need to start shooting film, from the brands you love. And if you’re new to film — even better! We’ve got all you need to keep you covered, including online lessons from the creatives you follow. We’re stoked on this one. Shop now, stay awhile.

Of course, with this latest addition to our repertoire, the team pulled together their hungriest film photographers to shoot for a weekend with some of Fuji’s best film stocks. While it pains us that their beloved Pro400H is no longer with us, we’ve made due with their other selects. Below are our images from that shoot (and beyond) to show you which of these are our favorites to work with.

How We Tested

The Moment team is full of film photography buffs; we geek over which cameras to use, the difference in film stocks for certain environments, and which vintage strap from Grandpa’s closet will look best with our medium formats. When we heard that our team received a personal brand contact for Kodak, Fujifilm, etc. — we grew evermore stoked to be a part of the Moment team to launch our Film Store. Our supply coordinator, Amanda, sent the film photographers some stocks to test out over the course of a weekend for launch assets. I gathered some thoughts and opinions from the team for this article, as well as my own personal testament to each film roll (I’ve used all of these myself and can’t bring myself to choose which is my favorite!). My words may reign truth, but our teams’ example pictures are truly a testament to what each of these stocks are capable of. Hope you enjoyed it!
