BERGGER Pancro 400 is a fast black and white film with classic grain. It has a nominal sensitivity of 400 ISO and produces very good results from 160 to 1600 ISO. Depending on the developer used, its grain can be varied from very fine to very sharp.
This film is characterised by the quality of its grain, the rendering of detail and the richness of its grey scale. It is composed of two emulsions based on silver bromide and silver iodide which differ from each other in the size of their grain. This allows the film to achieve an extremely wide exposure latitude. Both emulsions are panchromatic and are stabilised using some of the most sophisticated systems available.
BERGGER Pancro400 in 120 is coated on a 120 micron PET base. It has an anti-halation layer that clears during processing, and an anti-staining layer on the back of the film.
BERGGER Pancro400 can be used at ISO 800 or 1600, in which case we recommend developing the film in BERGGER Berspeed to retain detail in the shadows.
To achieve very fine grain with BERGGER Pancro400, we recommend exposing the film at ISO 160 or 200 and developing it in BERGGER Superfine.
