Test Roll with Bergger BRF400 in Toronto.

I ordered a brick (ten rolls) of Bergger BRF 400 from B&H a month ago to try out because every once in a while I want to try something new. To my understanding BRF 400 is re-spooled ORWO UN74 and if you're a real film photography geek this particular emulsion has a similar look to Eastman XX cinematic black and white motion picture stock.

Now to really test a film's latitude do it on a bright sunny day and BRF 400 handles well. Another true test is how it handles portraiture, I want to thank my friend Crystal for being my model, again the latitude handle it well. One thing, there is grain, either you're going to like it, or not. I used Kodak HC110 B at 7 min 30 seconds at 20c while not officially listed in the film specs from the Bergger website, Digital Truth had a developer and time combination.

I'm using this film primarily in city environments this Summer, will I buy more, don't know, I really love what I get from Rollei RPX 400.

Camera: Nikon F3HP, Nikkor Ai 50 f1.4 lens.
Film: Bergger BRF400, HC110 B.
