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.

Great cheap film

Nice results shooting this in a Minolta A5. Will definitely try it again. Some grainyness but not too intrusive.

I think I overexposed most of my shots but I like the way it almost looks like a pencil drawing

Great Budget Film

I was recently gifted a Pentax MV and wanted to test it out. I put fresh batteries in and a roll of Kentmere 400 and headed out for a walk. It was a beautiful afternoon and I captured some great images. I did make one error, I didn't check the film speed dial before i started snapping away and managed to shoot an entire roll of Kentmere 400 at 800. Whilst this might have made me panic a year ago, it's no problem now. I developed it at 800 courtesy of the times given on the Massive Dev Chart website and soon had my roll developed in HC-110. Kentmere 400 is a great film for beginners who may make the same mistake. As Bob Ross said; "We don't have mistakes here, just happy accidents!" This was one happy accident that turned out rather well thanks to the legendary exposure latitude of Kentmere 400 and one I will repeat in the future.

Ptetty good

This film is great for beginners, and is a reliable film to return to time after time. It's a good all round film, with even contrast levels.
