We love Kentmere! It’s an inexpensive alternative to professional black and white films, with every bit as good grain structure and quality. Some of our favorite film photographers use this as their go to film stock. It’s true that it might not be a timeless classic like Kodak Tri-X but for the price and quality there’s not a better choice.
Kentmere 100 is a medium speed, black & white film suitable for a wide variety of applications where good lighting conditions are available (both outdoor or indoor with controlled / studio lighting).
The fine grain and excellent sharpness make it suitable for enlargement prints while its broad tonal range and wide exposure latitude make it a smart choice for beginners and those returning to film.
The Kentmere range is owned and manufactured by Harman technology and follows the same high quality processes that are used to make all ILFORD PHOTO films and papers.
Kentmere 100 is panchromatically sensitised and can be processed in a wide range of different developers using spiral tanks, deep tanks and automatic processors.
*Please do not use with an amber safelight as this can cause fogging.
