These simple multifunction Bento Filmcase were designed for Since Alive, a Hong Kong-based analogue photography society.
Bento Filmcase is designed to improve the experience of shooting in film. Unlike digital photography, there are no SD cards being used in analogue photography. Instead, photographers feed their camera with film. The more shots a photographer plans to take, the more rolls of film the photographer will need to carry with him. There are then the problems, how to organise the many rolls of film efficiently and when multiple types of film is carried, how to quickly locate the roll of film needed?
The Bento Filmcase is the solution to these problems. The Bento Filmcase is not only a box to organise and store films, but also a way of clearly laying out all the films you are carrying, exactly like how various dishes are organised and displayed in a bento box. To locate a specific roll of film will take you nothing more than just a glance.
With a customizable storage space, photographers can choose store films according to their needs:
- 6x 135 film, or
- 4x 120 film, or
- 3x 135 film + 2x 120 film
Although the Bento Filmcase was originally designed to store 135 and 120 film, it will also fit in four rolls of 110 film.
The Bento Filmcase is sold in Hong Kong (Design Port) and in a couple retail stores in Taiwan.
