New film! We are delighted to introduce to you this film from the legendary Brownie Camera Guy. P-400 is the first film offered by BCG. It is manufactured in Germany for the motion picture industry. This is a unique film, licenced exclusively to BCG, and available for the first time to the public as a still photography film.
P-400 is an ISO 400/27° black & white panchromatic film. This is a 35mm / 36 exposure roll.
The dual layer emulsion produces an extraordinary tonal range. It delivers a wide exposure latitude making it especially suitable for use with difficult light conditions. P-400 has an anti-halation undercoat layer as well as an antistatic back layer. This film processes flat, no curl, thanks to the triacetate base.
BCG P-400 135-36 film is hand spooled into recycled cartridges and comes in a plastic canister. BCG film does not come in additional cardboard packaging helping to lower the final cost while being a bit more eco-friendly. It is not DX coded.
