About Kentmere

Kentmere 400 is a fast, fine grain black and white film, ideal for pictorial and fine art photography. Prints made from Kentmere 400 film exposed at EI 400/27 have very fine grain and outstanding sharpness.

In fact the results are similar to those expected from a conventional medium speed black and white film. The superb image quality of Kentmere 400 means that it is possible to use this film in situations that would usually require a medium speed film.

Its EI 400/27 speed rating, however, allows the use of higher shutter speeds or greater depth of field than with a medium speed film while giving similar quality results. Additionally, the fast speed of Kentmere 400 ensures excellent results in low lighting conditions.

Kentmere 400 is more than an ISO 400/27° film. Its exposure latitude allows good quality results to be obtained over the exposure range EI 200/24 to EI 1600/33. Kentmere 400 is compatible with all major processing systems and can be processed in all popular developers.

With Kentmere 400, Kentmere has created a truly remarkable black and white film. Thanks to revolutionary core shell emulsion technology, it has a level of sharpness and freedom from grain that belies the film's light grabbing ISO 400 speed. The most significant technology shift is in shadow rendition: thin areas of the negative are slightly denser and hold detail much better.

Kentmere 400 has wide exposure latitude and a tonal range that matches easily on both graded and variable contrast printing papers. Kentmere 400 is the ideal choice for applications that demand high quality, but where extra film speed is an advantage. It is suitable for pictorial, fine art as well as fashion photography and for many areas that were formerly the preserve of slower films.

For the creative photographer, the combination of speed and precision is a liberation: hand held portraits in available light have smooth skin tones and tack-sharp detail; reportage photography no longer suffers from gritty, conspicuous grain.

For studio photographers, the film's high speed spells smaller apertures, shorter exposures and lower lighting requirements - without any quality sacrifices. Kentmere 400 excels in the darkroom too: it pushes well and delivers its superb performance in the widest range of developers.

Good film


This is a good film for the price. I buy it in bulk for the classroom. I must be mindful of my limited budget, but still want to find a decent quality product for my students- this film does just that.


Good general Purpose BW Film


I actually do load my own canisters, and this is one film that I looked at and use as an alternative to the Kodak T-Max (when I can't obtain the T-Max). Great for purposes of Students in Arts Programs, Consistent developing, and easy to handle

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ERIK P  Dug out the old bulk loader that I used 30 years ago and I'm teaching my college student daughter how to bulk load for classes.
molly l  Is just a roll of film or bulk film?
TERRANCE G  This is bulk film. You need a bulk film loader and reloadable 35mm film cartridges to load the film. The film is in a unsealed black plastic bag inside the box, so it must be opened in the dark.
Shopper  How many rolls of film?
DAVID M  About 18 rolls, 36 exposures each
