What I had hoped would be an easy to work with, widely available and cheap, black & white film turned out to be just cheap. I’ve finished shooting a little test roll with this Kentmere 100 film and I am not impressed. Not with my own images and certainly not with the quality of the film. What you see here is the best of the lot, and that lot isn’t good.
Mind you, the camera didn’t help. A ‘Leica’ AF-C1, really a good-looking Minolta in disguise, is not worth the investment. Slow, horrible focus and super expensive batteries to keep the damn thing running. Meh.
Loads of imperfections on the film, mediocre contrast, mediocre latitude. I knew it was too good to be true when I purchased a few rolls. Ah well, back to the drawing board. There has to be a cheaper alternative to Tri-X, one would think?
