    Luminos/Kentmere

    Anyone looking for the graded or otherwise might do well to call Adorama or B+H in NYC. They were retailers for Luminos and just might have leftover stock.

    Kentmere in Canada?

    Maybe they should be talking to Fotospeed and Sterling and Kentmere ,because I do like these products form the UK but not at the prices expected from one small Lab here in Toronto.
    So any way Les, if you have any pull with these three companys, let them know there is a market for their products here , just make sure all three are represented by a east coast and west coast distributer and they would do well.

    Add another vote for distribution in Canada (or close). I've wished to try these papers and the lith developer Bob speaks of but the price has put me off for now.

    Just a quick FYI...Kentmere papers have started showing up on the Freestyle site.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    While I do my best to support the Canadian distributor, paper can be ordered direct from Kentmere and it takes less time than mailing across NA.
    I see the USA site lists graded Bromide in several grades. Kentmere's own site lists only one grade. Something does not add up.

    In other words, what is there about this Kentmere that would have me trading in (or adding to) my Agfa MCC?

    Depends... Kentmere have always had "premium" paper (Bromide, Kentona, Art Document/Classic etc) - possibly Luminous did not stock the full range of Kentmere paper? I've no idea. Have a look at the Kentmere site - may be something of interest to you, may be not. ..

    Cheers, Bob.

    There are some inconsistancies on Kentmere's UK site.

    The paper section say's Bromide is available in 'Glossy, grade 2, Double weight only.

    The data sheet section for Bromide say's 'Glossy, Stipple and Matt, Grades 1 - 4, Single and Double weight'.

    I can only assume that some parts of the site have not been updated yet?
