I have seen lots of threads and info on Kentmere papers, but I need development times for Kentmere 100 & 400 films. The inside gives times for Ilford development products, so a guess can be made, but I have Sprint on hand along w/ T-Max RS. The "Massive Dev Chart" doesn't list these films.

Thank You,
Jody

Kentmere never made films, Ilford did sell un-named 100 & 400 ISO films and these could have been packaged as Kentmere by Freestyle the US Kentmere distributor. Freestyle sell Kentmere chemistry, again Kentmere never manufactured chemistry :D

Okay. I have never heard of PAN 100 & PAN 400 are these the same thing as Delta 100 & 400 just named differently for Europe vs US? We do have Pan F.

Looks suspiciously like PAN 100 and PAN 400 re-branded.

That's what I was thinking but I had temporarily forgotten what it was called!

Not that it makes a difference but we are buying through Wynit because they are the sole (?) distributor for USA.

I don't think so. PAN 100 and 400 were/are sold by a mail order company called Firstcall in the U.K. I cannot recall what the website said about these two films but I cannot recall it saying it was D100 and 400 by any other name.

If I am right, this will only be important if you are expecting it to be like D100 and 400 in looks and characterisitics and base your dev times etc on the Delta times.

If you buy with the expectation that it is D100 and 400 then I'd check carefully before processing.

Contact with Harman might be worthwhile

As I understand it, and I may be wrong, these are tweaked versions of FP4 and HP5 that are more tolerant to higher temperatures. These films are the only Ilford films I've seen for sale in Budapest, whilst they are both for sale in the UK at FirstCall and now Silverprint.

According to the sheet Steve supplied, they are a full minute in difference from the Delta series. I would be good If I knew that the Kentmere was the PAN 100 & 400 because I now have those times. Interesting how things work though and I like to know in my head what is what.

Brian's comments are now "ringing bells" I think that Firstcall's owner actually admitted as much as Brian has said. Steve Smith's very useful link to the Harman pdf on both films gives dev times and I'd be surprised if they differ much from HP5+ and FP4. I am almost certain they are "old style" films rather than Delta types.

Comparing the times for FP4+ in various developers as printed inside a film box with the PAN 100 developer times in the PDF I posted a link for shows very similar times.


I think the PAN 100 and PAN 400 times in the PDF or any FP4+ or HP5+ times in the massive development chart would work fine.

Kentmere 100 is definitely not a t-grain film--I ran some test rolls last week, and it looks a lot like FP4+. I'm going to have to do some more tests though I think--the grain was huge when I developed it and the negative itself was fairly flat looking in stock D76. The film itself is also extremely thin, but hey, the film's $3 for 36 exposures!

Dear All,

You APUGGERS are pretty quick......!

I was going to post the announcement when product was in the shops ( we did'nt want people going to shops when it was not in stock ):

KENTMERE film is absolutely BRAND new, 2 new emulsions, 35mm only, at a competitive price, it is not a 'rebadged' ILFORD Film, I think I have stated many times WE DO NOT SUPPLY PRIVATE LABEL even to a BRAND we own.

These products are just launched now in the USA and CANADA and are available via our exclusive distributor in the USA for all KENTMERE products, WYNIT Inc, and AMPLIS in Canada...

Please note : These products are just starting to ship into distribution now, so check with your reseller that it is in stock before you go and try and buy, it takes a while to be delivered and put on computer till systems etc, etc,

I will be pleased to get feedback once you have tried these new products.

Kind Regards

Okay before some else does I'll make you annoyed with me, you probably already are after reading my C41 comment in another thread.

So when are the 120 and sheet sizes going to be available?

Dear Paul,

I never get mad with any APUGGER ! : We have no plans to launch 120 or Sheet film variants at this stage:

Dear Tom,

The characteristics of this film are obviously unique, but they are conventional emulsions as opposed to CCG ( Contrllled Crystal Growth / DELTA type ) emulsions.

Regards

Will these films be sold in Europe, or is this aimed at the North American market only?
