BERGGER Pancro 400 is a two emulsion film , composed with silver bromide and silver iodide. They differ by the size of their grain. These properties allow a wide exposure latitude. Cristals are precipitated by double-jet process, under the control of a computer. The two emulsions are panchromatic, and are stabilized by high tech systems.
BERGGER Pancro400 in 135 is coated on a 135 microns acetate base and includes DX Coding. It is designed with an undercoated anti-halation layer which clarifies during processing, and a anti-curling layer. https://bergger.com/nos-produits/films/pancro400-35.html
I needed a new challenge so I ordered this film in 35 and 120 formats. I shot the film with my Nikon FM3a, with the 50mm 1.8 pre-D lens attached. I developed the roll in Rodinal for 8 minutes @20C. I agitated the film for the first 30 seconds, then 10 seconds each minute thereafter. I fixed the film for 6 minutes, according the manufacturer’s recommendation. The results were ‘interesting’, each shot (subject) varied to a significant degree. The grain can be overwhelming but it works sometimes. I am not disappointed with my first roll. It will require some time before I know how this film works and when to use it.
