    I think it's a stretch to say Kentmere 400 is similar to HP5. GLWS

    Think it has a similar soft toe to HP5+ so rating it at 400 ISO is not outlandish, YMMV.

    Here is a link to an extremely long thread from a few years ago about Kenmore. Pg. 15 has results of some test rolls I did if anyone cares to take a look. I didn't re-read the thread, but there is a lot of info there and from (then Ilford Rep) Simon Galley.

    At school, the students are processing Kentmere using D-76 in the same drums as HP-5+ and the results are almost indistinguishable. The Kentmere has a bit more grain. So it is similar to HP-5+.
    There are differences, I'm sure, but to my eyes the negatives from Kentmere are excellent and the price is right compared to HP-5+

    Question to danfogel: Have you ever shot and developed Kentmere and compared the results to HP-5+?
    Or, are you making your statement based on comments made by others?

    I say this not to start a flame or to promote the sale of Kentmere (I have only a few rolls left to sell).
    Just curious.

    You could (should?) also try Ilford Pan 400, very cheap and very similar to HP5!

    I have not seen this film available in the USA.
    Does anyone know for sure?
    If it is, I would be interested in obtaining some to test, prior to recommending it to the students.

    No, Karl, Ilford Pan 400 is not a product available in the U.S. The nearest thing would probably be Kentmere 400; or Ultrafine Xtreme 400 is rumored to be Ilford Pan 400.

    I fairly frequently use pan400 for night shots, usually pushing to 1600+ , processing an hour in r09, I am quite happy with it.
    Some sample I have:

    https://flic.kr/p/pTwiqY
    https://flic.kr/p/pVL2KL

    I would not say very cheap, it is moderately priced. Costs about 3.5 gbp per a 35mm roll.
