Film review: Bergger Pancro 400 Part 7 – 120 EI 400 (bracketed +/- 1 stop)

  Welcome to part seven of my Bergger Pancro 400 review series. In this article I’ll be demonstrating the film in medium format (120) shot at EI 400 and bracketed by a single stop on each side If you’re new to the series, I strongly advice you to have a read of the previous articles. You can find them at the Bergger Pancro 400 hub along with a full background on the film in part one. Here’s what’s covered in this article:     Shooting / development / scanning methodology Camera I used my trusty 2000 series Hasselblad (focal plane shutter) with an A12 6×6 format film back. I metered using a Sekonic L-608 set to spot mode and zoomed to 1 degree. Each scene was metered at three points and an average was taken, which was then compared to the an incident reading from the same meter. Where there was a difference, I went with the lower reading of the two.  Each each frame was bracketed by a single stop of under exposure and over exposure.   Lens I used my Hasselblad Planar F 80/2.8 at F/2.8 on the indoor scenes and at F/4 outside. No filters were used.   Development As with the previous parts in this series – and for consistency, – the film was developed at 20c in Rodinal 1+25 for 8 minutes as per Bergger’s datasheet....

5 Frames with… #12: Rollei Retro 80S (EI 80 / 35mm) by Rob Davie

These five photographs were shot with 35mm Rollei Retro 80s film using a Canon FTb and Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens. Retro 80s is an unusual film in a couple of ways. Firstly, it has an extended red range into the near infra-red. This changes the results in subtle and sometimes unexpected ways. If you use it with a red filter then you can get the effects that we usually associate with infra-red photography – weird shades of foliage, that sort of thing. If you use it just as you would any other film however, it’s a great slow speed...

Exclusive: Japan Camera Hunter talks to EMULSIVE about his new 35mm compact camera project

Much like everyone else out there watching the Camera Ventures / Japan Camera Hunter livestream on Friday, my ears pricked up when Bellamy Hunt announced he was working on a new 35mm compact film camera. As Kosmo Foto’s Stephen Dowling reported in his coverage of the announcement, Bellamy stated, “We are going to start running out of compact cameras in about five or 10 years’ time…we’re going to be without a camera that’s easy to use…and in light of not having a compact camera, I guess…well, I’ve been working on something…” Details were frustratingly sparse, so I grabbed some...

A Brief History of… Polaroid

In an act of ultimate consumation, the company that was formed to save what was left of Polaroid Corporation’s dying European infrastructure has now been assimilated into the very brand it sought to help…but the story of how this state of affairs came to be is a little more complex than those 34 words might lead you to believe. You see, whilst Impossible may have rebranded themselves as “Polaroid Originals”, the company is not Polaroid / Polaroid Corporation. In fact, the new OneStep 2 (a fantastic looking and hopefully equally well performing camera), is not made by Polaroid, it’s...

5 Frames with… #11: Kodak Portra (EI 80 / 6×7 / 120 format) by Holger Feroudj

I almost exclusively shoot on black and white film for the simple reason that I can develop and print it myself in the darkroom. For this year’s summer vacation in Portugal, however, I decided to bring along a few rolls of Kodak’s Portra 160, just because it is always good to mix things a little up. I was especially keen on seeing how the colors would turn out when overexposing by one stop. Back home I had the film developed by a professional lab and then scanned it myself on a Hasselblad Flextight X5, using their canned Portra NC...
