French company Bergger has just announced the launch of a new black & white continuous tone print film.
‘Mainly dedicated to darkroom use, and especially the making of inter-positives and inter-negatives. It is a continuous tone film, which contrast is easily under control during the processing step.
Bergger print film is coated on a 175 microns PET base, for an easy handling. It is mainly sensitive to blue radiations, and is almost blind past 500 nm. Consequently it is perfectly usable with a traditional darkroom safelight.
Bergger print film photosensitive emulsion is yellow tinted and is very resistant to scratches. A very efficient undercoated anti-halation layer provides a maximal resolution. The red tinted backside has anti-static properties.
Bergger print film will be available at the beginning in September 2019 in the following sizes :
sheets: 4×5, 5×7, 8×10, 11×14
rolls: 50.8 cm x 10 m & 108 cm x 10 m’
