BCG P-400 is the first film offered by BCG. This film is manufactured in Germany for the motion picture industry. We have been authorized to make this film available under the BCG Film Company brand umbrella.
P-400 is a black & white panchromatic film with a native ISO of 400. This is a 35mm / 24 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-400 135-24 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.

I am Chuck Baker and I love photography. The BCG Film Company has been a dream of mine for many years and I’m very excited about making these films available to the analog photography world.
