Bergger PC400/4525 overview

  • 1Description

Characterized by a unique dual emulsion design, Bergger Pancro 400 is a high-speed panchromatic black and white negative film featuring a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° and a wide exposure latitude. By employing both silver bromide and silver iodide emulsion layers, an organic grain structure is provided that results in natural tonal gradations and an overall fine grain quality for high-resolution, well-detailed results in a variety of lighting conditions. The film is coated on an anti-curl 175 µm-thick polyester base and also incorporates an anti-halation layer, which clears during development, for improved overall sharpness and highlight clarity.

This item is one box of 25 sheets of 4 x 5" black and white negative film.

Bergger PC400/4525 reviews

Pancro 400 Black and White Negative Film (4 x 5", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from GRAINY So far, I've shot two rolls of this in 120 and 4 sheets of it in 4x5. Only impression I'm getting is "Gee, this film is really grainy". I'm not seeing much as far as any superior tonality compared to other popular 400 speed films. I'd probably take HP5 or TMax400 over this... The 120 rolls I developed with Adox Rodinal R09 (1+25), per the time/temp listed on the box. Quite noticeable grain. I thought, OK, the very high acutance of the Rodinal might be what makes the grain jump out so much. So, when it came time to develop the 4 sheets of 4x5, I tried Kodak D76 (stock), again following the instructions on the box. Maybe slightly less noticeable grain, but it was still obvious under the loupe. I'm afraid I don't understand what they're trying to accomplish with this film. The tonality isn't bad - but there's alot of good film out there with great tonality that isn't so grainy. I mean, in comparison, I've taken tons of photos on 35mm with HP5 and TMax400 and they both had great tonality and less apparent grain than this film in a larger format. And comparing to slower speed large format film, it's not even in the same ballpark. You can use Fomapan 100 and get a beautiful "old style" film tonality (which is what I think Bergger is trying to do here...) with way less noticeable grain, and it's not an expensive film at all. If you want something lo-fi, save money and just get the AristaEDU 400. I still have most of the pack of 25 sheets left, so I'll keep experimenting to see if I can find a developer that works well with getting finer grain, but so far I'm not very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking film! Great looking film! I have been using it at box speed and pushed 1 stop. This film takes to HC 110 very well and makes a nice flat negative, which for me makes scanning a little easier. Will buy a 50 pack next time!
