Shooting Kentmere 100

Last weekend my daughter and her softball tournament games. I figured this would be an good time to try out a roll of Kentmere 100. Not only a good time for the film but also for a Tamron 35-80 Adaptall II lens that I have had since the 1980’s but haven’t used in over 25 years.

So what you see below are shots taken during the first game, the break between games and then the final game. The roll was developed in Ilfotec DDX at 1:4 as per the Massive Dev Chart. I scanned them with an Epson V600 and very minor edits to remove dust and curve adjustments were made in Lightroom CC.

I am very pleased with the results not only of the Kentmere, of which I will be shooting in the future. I really like the tones in this film and love how flat it dries, which makes it easy to scan. It’s was also surprisingly nice to see that the Tamron is still a solid performer after all these years. The aperture ring works a bit rough but that is probably just due to age. I may have to check Ebay for a replacement.

If you’ve shot this film I’d love to hear of your experience or if you have suggestions on how I can better shoot this film please feel free to comment below!

Happy Shooting!!
