Very little contrast with some grain
A very specific look for black and white, not your run of the mill roll full of contrast. Performs good in low light and physical contrast scenes, but the lack of contrast is a specific taste you either want or don’t want, but can always just add some in post. I like it but would try others first.
Nice 400 BNW w Grain
Shot a roll of this recently, in a coffee shop. The subject matter already was contrasted so this lower contrast film worked well. It is grainy so keep that in mind. Shot it at 400 and probably should have shot at 200 or 320 to put a little more light on it. I developed it in Ilfosol 3, 20c, 7:30, 1:9. If I could do it over, I’d shoot it at a slower ISO or I would increase my development time a little
Gave this a try with my Olympus OM-1 35mm. I also shot a roll of 120 Kodak T-Max 400 with my Bronica (using my Olympus for light metering). The Darkroom processed both rolls. Comparatively speaking, the Berlin lacks any contrast and is very grainy. I’m the first to admit that I’m not an expert and still fairly novice with film photography so your mileage may vary. Given that I was shooting 2 B&W films essentially side-by-side using the same light settings, I was bummed by 98% of the Berlin shots I got back 😩
