It’s a good time to be a film photographer. Earlier this year we heard about the resurrection of Kodak Ektachrome and now French film manufacturer Bergger has announced a brand new ISO 400 speed emulsion in a variety of formats.
Pancro 400 is a two emulsion film, comprising both silver bromide and silver iodide in the light sensitive layer. These two substances have differing grains sizes, which, Bergger says, will give the film a wide exposure latitude. It’s panchromatic in nature, as the name suggests, meaning it sensitive to light across the visible spectrum.
Pancro 400 is available in 36 exposure 35mm rolls, 120 format and 4×5, 5×7, 13×18 and, 8×10 inch sheets. You should be able to find a distributor or dealer on the Bergger website.
