It was only a few days ago that Film Ferrania announced its triumphant return with their new ISO80 speed P30 black & white film. Now, French company, Bergger have announced Pancro 400. It’s a super sharp, fine grain, ISO400 black & white film. This isn’t simply a re-issue or a remake of a past film stock, though. This is a completely new emulsion.
Pancro 400 is a two emulsion film composed of silver bromide and silver iodide on an acetate base. Bergger say this provides for a wide exposure latitude. According to the datasheet the film will be available in rolls of 35mm and 120 medium format. But, it will also be available in sheets including 4×5, 5×7, 8×10, and 13×18.
