Kentmere 6010476 reviews

400 ASA Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bargain film Let's be honest, I went with this roll because of the price. I had no idea what to expect, but had read that this was made by the same people that make Ilford (just don't call it ilford). When I got my contact sheet back from the custom lab, I was pleasantly surprised. The darkroom tech mentioned that he had to give it about 20% more time in the development process in order to get good results, and he mentioned that he had figured this out through trial and error in the past. In any case, this has a very distinctive look to it regarding grain that I cannot really describe with words. Overall, I found it to be well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Film! I used to be a commercial photographer and now teach photography at the high school level. I still actively shoot film personally and with my students. I am always searching for the best budget minded film for my students but I can safely say that the search has ended. I thought that I had tried every film but then I found Kentmere. I made a purchase with little expectation. Well let me tell you, this film is simply great. grain is nice, relative to film speed. The contrast is beautiful as well. I now primarily shoot this film (when I shoot 35mm) as it seems to compare very well to the Ilford HP5 that I normally shoot with. I should have never doubted B&H as this is a quality product from a quality supplier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine classic ISO 400 b&w film I'm always on the look out for good value black and white film, and Kentmere 400 is precisely that. Grain is moderate, entirely typical for a film of this sensitivity, and tonal range is natural looking. Looks as good as Ilford HP5 Plus at 400 ISO. Scans well. Easy to develop in Ilfotec HC, my standard developer. Consistent and clean, relatively blemish-free, negatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best film I've used, end of I do exhibitions in the London area and travel doing street photography. In my latest travels to New York, I took about 10 rolls and when i saw the results I was amazed. I've used other films and this one just blows the others away. It's dirt cheap, has excellent grain structure, really good contrast and tonal range, and it's super easy to develop, fairly flexible with times and temperatures. I just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great film, preferred over Tri-X I ordered two rolls of this with a film shipment a little while ago to see if it would perform well for the money. It does, and it seems to be of finer grain than the Tri-X I'd been using before. I'll definitely keep buying it. It develops well in Sprint developer (after finding times on their website) and has good contrast. Shooting the inside of a Veloster for school, I used a Canon 17-40mm f/4 and, sitting in the back, shot the front at 17mm around f/4. The resolving power was good to the point that I could read the numbers on the dial for the air conditioner. Because I'm still getting used to shooting film I can't compare it in the grand sceme of all films, but I'll definitely use it again. I used the other roll for some portraits of a friend, and those came out quite well, too. It seems consistent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good every day film Embrace the grain. Grain level is moderate but looks great. I've pushed to 1600 with no problems. I develop in XTOL using times from massive dev and have been very happy with the results. Bulk loading will give you the best bang for the buck making this a very economical every day film. Tonal range is similar to Tri-X but with less contrast. If you scan you will appreciate how flat this film dries. Shaves a couple days of flattening off my workflow and i can now scan immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bang for the Buck! I bought 5 rolls of these film to begin my work with B&W. The grain detail is crisp and pleasant, comparable to Ilford HP5. Although I did love the outcome, it isn't as sharp as I'd like and the processing time is a bit longer than other films. Overall though, it's a great film with great processing flexibility!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Experimenting I bought this originally for my Experimental Black and White class due to it's affordability. I knew I was going to write on, burn, boil, and do other shenanigans with film so I figured this would be perfect. However, I also used this film outside of experimenting and got great results. Good detail in the shadows, the mid-tonal range is a little limited, but it gives a pretty cool effect and wasn't difficult to work around when enlarging. Also I found the exposure latitude to be excellent as the description said. I took two rolls with a peanut butter/cocoa smudged filter on the lens and the photos turned out pretty well. The film itself is thinner than the Kodak film I used for my beginner photo courses, so I had slightly shorter enlargement times.
