Bergger Pancro 400 Reviews

Stay Very Very Very Far Away

By Andrew
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2019-08-12

I recently purchased many boxes of this film for a new project I'm working on. I've been shooting Large Format 8x10 sheet film since 1992 and because of the reviews of the 120mm stock I had really high hopes for this film. It is by far the WORST film I have ever worked with. The quality control is 100% nonexistent. I found some sheets that were cut too small and wouldn't stay in the film holder, I found sheets without a notch code (that's correct no notch code) and I also found sheets of film with a notch code on the top right and then a second one on the side of the film. So they obviously cut it, notched it, and then realized they needed a smaller size so they cut it and notched it again. I wish I could say that was the worst part, but it's not. I scanned one of my negs and there are lines all over this film! It's not confirmed yet, but I'm guessing it's a manufacturing flaw. Those negs are completely unusable and because of this film I've lost thousands of dollars in materials and money spent on travel to work on this project. Do yourself a favor and stick with a company that knows how to make film and one that will respond when you get in touch with them about problems with their products. I reached out to Bergger last Wed. and I've heard nothing back. Choosing Bergger film might be my biggest photographic mistake to date. I'd give it 0 stars, but that's not an option.

question

For developing Bergger Pancro 400, I will be using Sprint Standard developer. For 400 ASA, can anyone give me some idea of the developing time (for example at 68 F.) either from experience or time used on other developer I can compare? Bergger says they have no idea since don't use Sprint in Europe. Thanks
Asked by: Norman
I don't use Sprint, but I just developed a 35mm roll using Rodinal at 1+25 for eight minutes. The results were decent. I might tinker from this to increase contrast, but these negatives would print in the darkroom very nicely. Shot on a Nikon F100 with a Nikkor 20mm f4.
