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

Pretty Good Film :)

My favourite 400 speed film is Ilford hp5, but I honestly admit that Kentmere Pan 400 is really good, you can push it up to 1600 ISO without any problems, it's a bit low in contrast after scanning, but that's not a problem, it's a bit grainier, but it can also be an advantage, depending on what developer you use to develop this film you can control the grain size. I recommend the DD-X and FX-39 II if you want less grain.

Thanks , Stay Classic .

Pleased with the results

Lovely little cheap stock that seems to hold up to other slightly more expensive ilford stocks. I rated it at 800 and pushed it in development and I love the contrast and the latitude.

Great All Rounder

Recently I got back into film photography with a view to carrying out a new project - 13 rolls of film 7 x 400 Kentmere and 6 x Ilford HP5 Plus.​​​​​​​​ The rest I will shoot and not develop until all 12 rolls are completed. Excited to shoot and then wait for the results, could be a roll a month, week who knows.​​​​​​​​
1 roll of Kentmere shoot to test the Canon Sureshot Supreme, it’s a great film and has got me excited for the project.
