Exactly, which is why I ordered the Arista Premium, 12 36-exp rolls. I do not mind grain at all; it is supposed to be there in 400 asa film. But the Kentmere grain seems clumpish.
If you think these photos have hand shake, you should examine my pics with a Bessa R. I had to let it go even though it was beloved because of a neurological condition I have (CIDP: it causes, among other issues, hand tremors related to the posture in which my hands are; tremors increase the finer I try to control things with my fingers; a monopod is in my near future). The heavy, leaf-shutter Yashica is my solution for portable kit.
My very first scanner is Epson's V300. I am delighted with it.
Now, these pics came from my fifth roll of self-developed film (2 rolls Tri-X, 3 Kentmere), so my experience is next to nil. But I know this and much appreciate it: the Kentmere 400 dries FLAT, as if ironed and starched ...
2F/2F, speaking of grain - or little of it - here is my flickr page with photos from the Yashica and Portra vc160: http://www.flickr.com/photos/51210672@N07/
