    What I have been doing with my Kentmere is exposing it EI1600 and developing it in Xtol 1-1 with pleasing results. Grain adds character.

    Yeah, I agree. The grain is quite pleasant to view. I've never shot the stuff but after seeing that grain I am going to pick up some sheets.

    I have been shooting quite a lot of Kentmere 400, and a few rolls of HP5+. I find them similar, but not quite the same. HP5+ has whiter whites to me, whereas Kentmere has a more overall gray quality to it (if that makes sense.)

    Price-wise, here in Japan the two films are similar (for bulk, which I buy) and I may switch to HP5+ soon. I've read that it doesn't get along well with Rodinal, but I shall do my own testing

    I've been developing Kentmere 400 in HC-110 recently (below 10c because tap water is very cold and I'm too lazy to use a bath) and grain has been comparable to Tri-X and other 400 speed films
    Those who know, shoot film

    Shoot, thanks for bringing this film to my attention. I've been looking for a film that has some grain to it--I used to get Neopan 400 and develop in PMK with similar results. Any luck pushing it?
