Harman Reusable 35mm Film Camera review: load, shoot, repeat

The Harman Reusable 35mm Film Camera comes with two rolls of Kentmere Pan ISO 400 black & white film, but that’s just for starters.

Digital Camera World Verdict

I like that the Harman Reusable 35mm Film Camera really is reloadable rather than disposable. It’s a keeper and, to prove the point, it comes with not one but two rolls of good-quality, 36-exposure black & white film, which makes up a third of the overall selling price.

I’ve always found there’s something a bit magical about black-and-white film photography. It has its own distinctive look with real-life grain, that digital cameras can only emulate. This reusable camera from Harman Technology lets people dabble in mono film shooting, without any significant outlay. It comes complete with two rolls of Kentmere Pan ISO 400 black & white film, each offering 36 exposures. And if you’re not familiar with the name, the film is actually manufactured by Ilford, a company with one of the longest and most illustrious histories in the business.
