Bergger Pancro 400, D76 1+1

Bergger Pancro 400 is fast becoming one of my staple films and I've been experimenting with the developers on hand. In Rodinal 1+25 it was meh, Pancro 400 shone in HC110 dillution B, and now, the stalwart, D76 or American ID-11. I used the one part water one part D76 stock solution and followed the 17 minute developing time with the recommended inversion protocols from Bergger. The end results you see below.

I showed my friend and fellow co-host from the Classic Camera Revival john Meadows a few of the shots. There's grain, but it's a pleasing grain. His comment was some of the photos had a three dimensional tonality, especially the Mercedes AMG supercar. You want to test the limits of a film find and example of this car in the matt black finish and see how your film handles it.

Bergger Pancro 400 processed in HC110 B and D76 1+1 was shot in bright harsh sunshine so I can't comment how it would handle duller light, you will have to stay tuned for that. Overall in 35mm if your willing to work with grain Pancro 400 is a nice film with tonality from the dual silver layer emulsion that would blow your mind.

Camera: Nikon F90, Nikkor lenses.
Film: Bergger Pancro 400, D76 1+1.
