Kentmere 400 35mm film is a great starter-film for people trying 35mm film photography for the first time. For this reason it is often known as a 'student' film!

The soft backing allows for easy scanning, the images will have medium contrast and fine grain, and its mid-speed rating means it can be used in a variety of lighting situations.

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 Mobberley 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.

For more information about the brand check out our bio of Kentmere

This was my first ever reel of this film - I got a few shots that I am really happy with, although the look on some was not the look I normally go for.

Kentmere 400

First time using this film and the first time shooting on a film camera and I'm pleased with the results I got. Will try other brands to see which one I prefer but for the price, it's hard not to use again in the future.

I tried the film in several different Home-Made Developers but shooting s few frames then CUTTING it in a changing bag . I got best results in my homemade 510-Pyro 1:100 for 11 mins -- I also tried the Ascorbate Developer by Crawley 'FX-55' but got 'Thin' negs at 14 mins The GRAIN under a magnifier seems identical to the new 'Agent Shadow 400' just out on sale ! I used my ASAHI PENTA SPOTMATIC -F and a KX for testing and some with a GREEN FILTER I was given by a Camera Club mate .
