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.

Of an evening

The Kentmere so unfamiliar to me and new, pics were taken and into the darkroom in a very short time. The grain level you`d expect in 400 and a little tweaking in Adobe got the contrast required. A nice product.

Great value for money for a very decent film

I got this film as a beginner and didn't expect much from the photos but some of them came out beautifully, so much better than I was expecting.

Using this film for the first time and I am very impressed, it is not as contrasting as HP5, but still it’s a great all rounder, I would certainly recommend this film

Surprising results

This was an order equivalent of a 'stocking filler'. I grabbed a roll of this and the 100 speed simply because it was cheap and I was curious. After shooting it and home developing using Kodak D-76, I'm really pleased with the results. So much so, I have since picked up a bulk roll too!

Budget black and white that will amaze you

This is easily my favoured stock at this point. I immediately fell in love with the flat nature of the negative, you can easily push and pull this in post - whether it be digitally or in the darkroom. It's very very very forgiving when it comes to exposure, so great for learners too!
