Great beginner/test film

Rated 4 out of 5

This film is noticeably higher grain and a bit lower quality than its Ilford counterparts, but I personally really enjoy the look it creates. I would highly recommend this if you’re just starting out, or if you’ve never tried black and white before.

A fantastic film to stock up on

This film is cheap, flexible, and surprisingly yields extremely high image quality. I shot several rolls of Kentmere 400 pushed to 1600 with DDX and I was blown away by the results. I love this film because it encourages the shooter to go out and shoot. It’s so cheap and with that expendable mentality, it’s easy to just snap pictures of things you would not normally take pictures of. I could go on for days. But seriously, this film is cheap and yields high quality results. The only downside I have experienced while using this film is that there may be scratches on the film already or it scratches extremely easily. I don’t use kentmere 400 for anything serious but I would highly recommend using it for everything from portraits to city scapes and architectural photography. Street photography shooting is also a great choice with this film. Kentmere 400 yields medium contrast but sharp images when developed with ddx @ 1600

My favorite around the house film

I buy Kentmere 400 in 100′ rolls and self-roll it into canisters. With that, it’s the cheapest and easiest film to just have around the house (or to make short rolls when I need to test out a new camera). It’s perfect for documenting life as I see it. I like to overexpose it by a stop if possible because it creates a really pleasing highlight contrast on caucasian faces. It makes my daughter’s eyes pop from her face. The grain is pretty noticeable, but I like that it.

Pan 400 the HP5 alternative

I like pan 400 a lot ive never had any trouble with it and it is generally half the price of hp5 in my country. it has less detail and contrast than pan 100 but its easier to shoot it as a whole because the sun is outlawed in this land so i have less light to work with. I develop my films with perceptol mostly because its the cheapest thing and its nice fine grain.
