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.

Worth Another Go

Having previously used Pancro in 35mm and really liking the results, this was my first time using Pancro 400 in 120 format. I shot 12 pictures also using colour filters and got a mix of results. Although I quite like some of the photos and it was a worthwhile experiment and learning curve, I think next time I'd shoot without filters for better results. For that reason I'll definitely buy it again as it's good value for money and interesting pictures as seen in my sample shots.

Top two black and white film

Probably for me one of my top two B&W films nest to Agfa APX. There are great tonal ranges, the blacks are inky while the whites are like new cotton sheets. I sincerely love this. The grain is almost palpable, took shots of sea worn glass on a yorkshire beach where the sand really stood out. Pre soak before you develop for 1 min for best results.

A unique film stock

I enoyed using this and have gotten some of my favourite images out of it but it is a bit of a special occassion film. It's not one I would go to for everyday use.

Lovely grain and fabulous character

I've been using Bergger Pancro 400 almost exclusively since its release in 35mm, 120 and 5x4 and have just fallen in love with this film. I tend to develop in Rodinal 1+25 and adore the grain this combination produces, it has an aesthetic quality and character I find is missing in so many other emulsions. A lot of my work is experimental and Pancro 400 allows me to try things knowing how the film will respond well with a good tonal range and contrast.

I'm experimenting with a few different developers with this film with a wide range of results. Bergger BER49 produced negatives with significantly finer grain and will provide a different option.

This is by far my favourite film and I really don't plan to use anything else for the foreseeable future.
