Kentmere 100 Film 35mm B&W - 24 exp
Our Price: £3.80 GBP100194
A great starter-film at low speed for people trying 35mm film photography for the first time. Similar to the Kentmere 400 it is characterised by soft backing that allows for easy scanning as the negatives lie flat, and the resulting images will have medium contrast and fine grain.

Kentmere was a small black-and-white film manufacturer based in the Lake District for many years. It was acquired by Ilford's parent company in 2007, who consolidated production in their Mobberly plant. The brand exists as a more-affordable alternative to Ilford, with the same quality and consistency of production but with savings made in the emulsion chemicals.

I tried this film for the first time recently and shot some still life images. I was really pleased with the results and will definitely be buying it again. It’s a great price for those just starting out and I quite like that it’s 24 exposures rather than 36. Means it doesn’t take forever for me to finish a roll.
I haven't been expecting much from this film, considering its price, but I am pleasantly surprised. The tonality is good, it develops well, it's easy to handle by the scanner... All of this with the caveat of exposing it well, of course. I've tried it at 100 iso and developed in Rodinal 1+50 for 13 minutes. The quality's great for such an all-rounder.
This is the first roll of black & white film I have shot, so figured it would be good because if I messed it up or hated the outcome, I wouldn’t lose sleep over a roll that cost less than £4. But wow, this is actually such a nice film and produced some really beautiful shots. Is very easy to shoot with and I will definitely be buying this again to experiment further, very impressed!
I really love the tones and the sharpness of this film. Very little grain (as much as needed) and lovely scale of greys. Is a lovely film which can be pushed and pulled as it is quite flexible. It delivers good results. Buy with confidence.
Cheaper films are usually cheap for a reason, but this one is an exception. Kentmere 100 provides sharp pictures, smooth grain, and wonderful tones that aren't too overpowering.
With some other black and white films I find the contrast can be a little too overpowering and difficult to work with in certain light, but with this film its well controlled and perfect for my needs. I find it extremely good for street photography in the day time and a great all rounder for everything else. It might not have a distinctive "character" like Tri-x or JCH Streetpan, but sometimes I just don't want that. I want a black and white film that does what it's supposed to do and does it well, and Kentmere 100 suits that perfectly.
I buy it because I like it. The low price is merely a bonus.
