Interesting, a while ago I think I read posts where people said that Kentmore was a rather pedestrian film. Though it was pretty good and now it seems like i am seeing more from with excellent results
A few more from some recent Kentmere 100. I continue to be impressed with what this film can deliver. Let's hope that the vendors that sell it don't read too many of our posts and raise the price.

from Strange Brew parking lot, same gear as above
I'd agree with you about the Kentmere 100, Mike; despite it's very reasonable price the overall quality is very high, right up there with it's more expensive cousin Ilford FP4 Plus, in my estimation. Here are some samples using the Kentmere developed in PMK Pyro. The camera was a Topcon RM300 fitted with a 35-135mm Tamron Adaptall 2 f/3.5-4.5 (Model 40a) .
Thanks, Rick. And from your results the Kentmere 100 really "sings" in the PMK Pyro. The contrast and sharpness remind me a lot of the last version of Plus-X that was available.
Rolleicord Vb, Pan F+ in Beutler

A little color for a change.
Yard limit, Pentax ZX-5 with Sigma 28-80, Reala
Obviously from a few years back, but hopefully not a repeat.
same gear and film
One from the compact Pentax 40mm f2.8
not sure if the camera was ZX-5 again or if it was the MX Fuji Superia 200
Color, nice, not your usual medium
Thanks, Donald. I used to shoot more color when my town had a local 1 hour lab. It's mail it to Dwayne's which does good work or process myself (which I don't use the chemicals fast enough). Probably will send a few rolls to Dwayne's fairly soon though.
Here are couple more from the Canon P with Film Ferrania
a couple more
same branch from different sides one shadow and one sun
Nice results, Don. I can't wait until this film hits the market. I will have to try a few rolls.
It looks like it is going to be pretty good, here is a link to all the photos in an album
While I wait for this film I do still have a few rolls of Rolleipan 25 and probably about 35 to 40 feet of Panatomic-X in one of my bulk loaders so good for now on the slow, fine grained film. Another film I'm seeing more lately on this forum is Ilford Pan F+. I never tamed it in Rodinal, but got what I wanted from it in HC110 dilution H.

To late Mike , when I first bought this film , (couple of years ago) ,it was around $2.29 or $2.49 .
Now it runs $3.49 for 24exp. up to $4.39 for 36exp.
Yes , I know still cheap comparing to some other film . Probably will go up another dollar middle of 2018.
The real bargain, Erko, is in 100' bulk. But still good that single rolls are going for less than some films.
Erko, another timeless photo (see no words)
One from a few years ago. Taken with FED-5V, Jupiter-12 35/2.8, Elite Chrome 100.
