Personal Comments : Neelabh Tiwari very generously sent me 2 rolls of Kentmere to try out. And they were just sitting around for a really long time in the fridge. Finally I shot them and to my surprise, they look great. Now for those of you who want to know where is this film coming from, Kentmere is owned by Ilford. As for the result, I found the film to be very flat. If you would compare it to Ilford or Kodak BW films, you’d find it to have lower contrast and more tonal gradation. But what I noticed is that Tmax and Ilford films tend to hold the tones better when pushed, whereas this film tends to eat up detail and make them a lot more contrasty.
