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

Good film for getting into film photography

Bought rolls of this film to get back into shooting film after a decade of only shooting digitally, really quite decent for the price. It does have a noticeable grain vs slower films and "better" films, but it's pretty much foolproof if you expose it well and 400 ISO is a good middle ground to allow shooting in daylight and some lower light shots.

Nifty, and far exceeds its price

I'm incredibly happy with this film, especially for the price point. I was concerned about all the tones blending into a very grey shot but the distinction between tones is lovely and it gives good depth to photos. I'd used this film as I was testing a new camera and didn't want to sink expensive film if it wasn't functioning, but instead I've ended up with the majority of the roll looking absolutely beautiful. Yeah, there are better black and whites for contrast, and there's a fair bit of grain but at £5 for 36 exposures it performs beautifully and I'm very happy.

Great results

Low price film which is delivered promptly. The results are absolutely amazing in the many years I've been shooting with black and white film I've never found such good quality film.

Nice results

I bought this to film test a Kodak Retina. Went for a walk in the bleak midwinter. Both camera and film did really well. I took some nice portraits with the film also.

Try it, you'll be surprised!

I've tried this film a few times and had some decent results when pushed, but I always got "muddy" images when I shot it at 400....UNTIL TODAY!
I have previously developed the film in HC110 Dilution B for about 5 mins 30 sec, as per the recomendations on Massive Dev Chart, but not having much luck with that, I decided to go back to basics with this roll and did a semi-stand development for 1 Hr in Rodinal 1+100, and as if by magic, I got some much better images. Maybe it just doesn't like HC110?...I don't know!
Either way though, I know how I'm going to develop my future rolls!!
