Description

The first original B&W emulsion for over a decade, Pancro 400 120 film's launch in 2017 was highly anticipated by medium format photographers who praised its clarity and exposure latitude. This partly comes from it's rare double-emulsion set-up which allows for different sizes of grain in the final image.

A must-try for any serious black and white photographer! Also called Pancro400, Pan 400 or PAN400.

Reliable performer

Pentax 67 165mm f2.8. 1/125th @f2.8 Processed in Bellini Hydrogen @20 degrees C for 14 minutes
I was introduced to this film a few years ago and initially shot it in the LeRouge66 pinhole camera where exposure was somewhat unreliable. Having transferred it to the Pentax I found my initial development time 0f 6.5 minutes was way too short. Everything was under processed. I revisited the Massive Dev Chart and it quoted 10 minutes, so I trialled that for one roll, which was way better. With further use, using my exposure techniques, and the Pentax have settled on 14 minutes. For me, it produces the images with great depth and feel. The greys are subtle and the blacks black. Clean highlights too. But we have to remember all reviews are very subjective. We all have different, exposure, development, and scanning techniques, not to mention the kit the pictures are taken on or scanned on. They all have an influence, as does the contrast of the scan you prefer to work with for your post production. It's always helpful to have a starting point, but these things should be just that. The most important thing is consistency in how you do your work flow, then minor adjustments can be made to produce the images you are looking for. The types of photography boxes below I have ticked are one I have used it for. All of them produced lovely results. But getting to know a film takes time, so don't use it once and discard it if it didn't do what you thought it would. This film is up there for me, and is great value for money.

Great character

I really enjoyed the results I got from my first rolls of Bergger in 120. Shot on a mamiya rz67 in studio I loved the depth of the shadows and sharpness in spite of the grain. Very manipulatable dependent on the developer you use.

Hugely disappointing

Developed in Bellini Hydrofen. Shot with a Yashica-Mat Red window compatibility isn't great as the text is feint.
I think this film is very selective about the developer you use. Rodinal and Caffeinol don't work and it wasn't great in hydrofen. Dev time was six minutes as was fix time and it required a pre-soak. The grain is noticeable, clear skies were a bit streaky, the images just weren't great. Shadow detail and sharpness are there but it isn't a patch on Delta, Rollei Retro & rpx, HP5+, or Foma, all of which are cheaper, some significantly so. I am unlikely to shoot this again unless someone donates a roll, I certainly won't be buying it. Some people get good results but I can only review from my own experience.

A lovely vintage looking film

I really enjoyed using this film, it’s got a very vintage rendering. So I decided to take it to beamish and shoot with a Moskva 5 I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. But it’s a film to be careful with as it seems to have a fair level of basefog.

Lovely classic film

I've shot a few rolls through my RB67 and absolutely love the classic look of this emulsion. Would definitely reccomend and will be buying more.
