Bergger's Pancro400: A New B&W Film to Hit the Stores Soon


First was Kodak's Ektachrome, a few weeks later Film Ferrania, now Bergger ups the competition in the analogue photography industry with their new film BERGGER Pancro400. The Pancro400 will be a new black and white film with 400 ISO, available in several sizes -- 35mm, 120 and sheet film. The Pancro400 is the first black-and-white film formulated for more than 15 years.

Bergger, the continuation of the French manufacturer Guilleminot Company founded in 1857, is the latest French firm to take on silver photo products, chemicals and film. The new Pancro400 will boast the classical grain film range, resulting from the two panchromatic emulsions it will use, based on silver-bromide and silver iodide. This makes the film have a wide exposure latitude, perfect for very high resolution. The film will be available in Europe, mid-February 2017, and in the USA and Asia in early March 2017.

    I've gotten to use this film with my 4x5 camera and I have to say it is spectacular! Skin tones are beautiful and there's plenty of shadow detail.
