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

Great results

First time shooting Kentmere 400, I wanted to try out for a while and I must say I am very pleasantly surprised by the results in bright sunshine! Great tonal range and contrast with a forgiving exposure latitude. I will certainly use it again a different lighting condition but so far one of my favourite B&W film.

Affordable intro into B&W

I wanted to experiment with black and white film and this was the perfect first roll. The cheaper price point meant I was able to shoot more with more freedom and I'm really excited by the results. Looking forward to shooting some more soon!
