    My results with Bergger BPF 200 were in conjunction with ABC Pyro and also with Pyrocat HD. I did not like this film with either of those developers. It simply will not build the density that is needed with Azo. It is marginal, in my opinion even with negatives that require any degree of expansion from normal contrast, for silver printing. Sorry to "rain on your parade". But that is what I found, in my experience.

    I don't like PMK nearly as well as Pyrocat.

    Norman Riley of this list is what I consider a Master of BPF 200/PMK. See his site at:

    If you contact him directly he may suggest starting times.
