    New film from Begger! BERGGER Pancro 400

    I saw this on apug. A new sheet film, hell yes! Not finding much else online about it.

    I see that it has two emulsions. One high sensitive and one low sensitive. I would be interested to learn what the advantage would be to having two emulsions. A longer scale negative? More detail captured in the shadows and highlights? I would also like to know reciprocity characteristics, and how both curves are affected. I saw its characteristic curve (PMK developer) on their FB page, but it's not a family of curves which doesn't tell me much. What do both emulsions' curves look like?
    At any rate, I'm very pleased to see a new film introduced, and it will be available in sheet film, including 8x10!

    I still have a box of Bergger 200 that I bought several years ago when it was all the rage with Pyro in BTZS tubes. Never got around to really trying it. I did expose a few sheets but never processed them. One day soon....

    I'm still shooting Bergger 200 in 14 x 17 and love the film. I'd love to try some of this in 8 x 10.

    I think this is standard for ISO 400 films - nothing special here in that respect.

    Hopefully, it'll be less grainy than their 200, which was really a 100 speed film with more grain than HP5+. For small enlargements, though, it could be very beautiful.

    Interesting about the grain. I never found the 200 to be grainy. Then I was shooting it in 8 x 20 and 14 x 17!

    Contacted Beau Photo in Vancouver and they said that they won't be carrying it due to low Canadian dollar. Lame.
