Two Emulsions Relaunch – ATM400 and MTN100
It’s always a difficult time to stop the sale of a film emulsion, especially when so many of the big names (Fuji) are continually discontinuing film stocks. But two saw only briefly in many cameras and gained a devoted following. Street Candy came into being to sell spooled ATM security surveillance film, then followed up with MTN100 three years later. But then, they had to stop due to circumstances beyond their control. But they’re back.
The decision to bring back the ATM400 and MTN100 film lines was rooted in our profound admiration for analogue photography. We’ve always been committed to preserving and advancing this cherished art form. While these films had previously garnered a devoted following, external circumstances had led to the difficult decision to discontinue their distribution. However, fate took a surprising turn when our new partner, Flic Film, offered us an unexpected opportunity. They successfully sourced the same emulsions and possessed the capability to assist in manufacturing. Despite the need for adjustments to our packaging and distribution processes, the chance to revive MTN100 and ATM400 was too compelling to overlook. We couldn’t be more excited to bring these beloved films back to photographers worldwide.
ATM400 film has an intriguing origin story that sets it apart. Originally crafted from security surveillance film used in ATM cameras to capture the raw emotions of frustrated individuals interacting with the machines, this film has since undergone a transformative journey, finding a more purposeful path in photography. Street Candy ATM400 stands out as a panchromatic black & white negative film cherished for its captivating contrast, particularly beloved among street photographers. Its ability to render rich grey tonality also makes it a versatile choice for photographers exploring various styles and moods.
