Bergger PC400/4550 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 50 sheets of 4 x 5" black and white negative film.

Bergger PC400/4550 reviews

Pancro 400 Black and White Negative Film (4 x 5", 50 Sheets) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from long development time I bought this film for its tonality I had seen produced by others. I usually use FP4+@EI 100 so found working with a 400 speed film to be a bit challenging. Early morning shots were in the 1/2 seconds to 1/15 seconds area which is a weak spot on my older shutters. The film requires a bit more development time than others so test or make duplicates while shooting. Pancro 400 and Pryocat HD with semi-stand techniques controls highlights and stains to a deeper base tone than other films I have used. I found it has less overall contrast or smoother transitions between tones and holds shadow detail very well. Overexposure by a couple of stops leads to a very dense negative. Scenes with only 2-3 stops of subject brightness does need expansion in development. Packaging and film sizing is equivalent to other major brands and has a single V notch pattern. Not my go-to film but will perform when needed.
