    I shot this film at the rated speed and processed in a pyro developer with semi-stand development for 16 minutes. Absolutely beautiful for printing on graded paper. Through an 8x loupe, the grain is there but barely noticeable, which is just where I want it. Grain in the low and mid values accentuates texture and with pyro, the high values are stained to prevent unsightly grain. This film reminds me very much of the now extinct Hungarian films, which I loved dearly. Superb!

        Comments about Kentmere 100 ASA Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

        Kentmere is Ilford's less expensive brand, but I think it looks just like Ilford! The contrast is very nice and you can use filters if you would like an even more dramatic contrast. There is a wide exposure latitude and my photos all turn out very well! When I see Kodak B&W I all ways think it looks almost watery or muddy (just my opinion of course), but Kentmere give you a very nice not quite dry, but even look. The grain is very decent, you will notice some and it will defiantly have a film look to it, but not enough to degrade your image. It is super cheap and gives you that Ilford look!

          This is a great value for outdoor shooting. It is consistent, fine grained, and easy to scan. The only drawback is that it seems easier to scratch than some other films.

                Comments about Kentmere 100 ASA Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

                Very good value film. Tonal range is good, with clear shadow detail and a moderate to low grain. Contrast tends to the low side, but in an attractive manner. Develops easily in Ilfotec HC and dries flat making it easy to scan. I will be using this film as my main staple for around 100 ISO black and white shooting, only switching to Ilford FP4+ when I want more contrast and slightly stronger blacks or to Ilford Pan 50 for very low grain. I really like the look of this film.

                  I would gladly shoot this film again and again! Best B&W film for the price. Shot my first roll of Kentmere 100 with a rangefinder and super sharp glass, developed with Kodak HC-110 Dilution H, and the results were stunning. Great latitude and compares well with other traditional B&W films I've used.

                  I am an amateur at best, but do love the tactile nature of film. Kentmere is manufactured by the same company that makes Ilford, but this is not a re-packaging of the film from Ilford. For my purposes, it is very effective and within my price-range as I become one with my camera and lenses.

                      I shoot historical architecture and natural/landscape photos. Though it is tagged medium speed, for the money it is plenty slow enough and fine grained to capture greytones and light shadows while maintaining good contrast. The film develops predictably with Xtol.

                                    This film performs brilliantly. It's a cheaper, but still quality, replacement for Ilford. The store near my house carries Ilford for a little over six dollars a roll, having this product available really just gives me the ability to keep shooting. Not going broke in the process is certainly a plus.

                                        I am teaching myself photography, and for this experimental phase, there is no need to spend the big bucks on the other name brands. This film does just great for the learning process. I enjoy the grain in the ISO 400, but when I want sharper images, ISO 100 is just fine.

                                                This is a great film that can be used by a beginner to an advanced photographer. It's relatively slow ISO provides clear images. I was even able to squeeze an extra picture or two out of my first roll. It also can be developed by the user in a darkroom with black and white chemicals. The low price is perfect for buying in bulk and I'm assuming it will last long when kept below 75 degrees as shown on the box. Great product! Will buy again when I'm done with my first 5 rolls.

                                                    I shot this film at the rated speed and processed in a pyro developer with semi-stand development for 16 minutes. Absolutely beautiful for printing on graded paper. Through an 8x loupe, the grain is there but barely noticeable, which is just where I want it. Grain in the low and mid values accentuates texture and with pyro, the high values are stained to prevent unsightly grain. This film reminds me very much of the now extinct Hungarian films, which I loved dearly. Superb!

                                                      Great contrast, a bit too grainy for a 100 but I love it!
                                                      so it's up to you.
                                                      I highly recommended it!
