    Yeah, and the more beat up it is, the easier it is to have that believed.... That works with the old film stuff, but would not have flown with the 150-600mm zoom lens I bought this summer for my new Canon DSLR. I sold a lot of stuff for those two!

    But I'd be living in squalor without this agreement, with lots of gear, but no home, probably.

    It's good to be single. I buy what I want when I want and as I want. Harrumph.

    Then again, I do have some self control. I have a house and no squalor, and not nearly all the toys I'd like.

    Agreed! No squalor here, just stuff, ala George Carlin.

    here are a couple of tests I shot 8x10, (cropped to remove distracting elements) One is Tmax100 and one is X-ray.

    Very well executed test that clearly shows the tendency towards harshness of xray film, although it looks like you've been very successful in taming it. Nicely done!

    thanks, the most interesting aspect to me is the glass candle holder on the far left is red glass the jar behind has a green tint and of course the doll heads show the reds blocking up with the back lips and darkness of the cheeks. I have shot some images of my wife but they are not processed yet, as i am presently laid up by a slight bike accident. I hope to be able to process them and scan them next week.

    Hi,
    I'm trying to read all this great information, 490 pages is a bit overwhelming. So, I am trying to be good and do my research but maybe one of you will help point me in the right direction.
    For enlarging b&w negatives onto xray film which color sensitivity film would be best? I have a color head enlarger and a tungsten head enlarger. Color filters on the enlarger to match the film?
    thank you folks
    Robert

    It may come down to other factors than color sensitivity, depending on your use. For instance, if for display, the Fuji HR (green) films have a strong blue background stain. Do I remember that Carestream is essentially colorless, or am I wrong about that? Also, different films have different contrasts, which would make a difference if you are making B&W transparencies.

    Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I tried using Fuji HR as a replacement for Lith film, to enlarge a negative onto and then contact print that to get a negative for alt processes. The results were hopelessly soft - my guess is due to the double-sided emulsion, but not sure.

    Unless you are using a red LED as an enlarger light, it won't really matter I don't think. The condenser head I used for the above mentioned enlargement was just a run-of-the-mill tungsten light. It's still plenty sensitive to the tungsten spectrum.
