    Images shot on X-ray film

    With all of the recent interest in x-ray film I thought it would be helpful to have a thread dedicated to the images made. If you do not have prints done yet then post the scan of the neg. That is okay I guess but for me printing is where it is at. Tell us what you used and the details if you wish. This should show what can be done with x-ray film.

    8x10 carbon transfer print. Green sensitive x-ray film Developed in Pyrocat-HD in Tanks 1:1:100 for 6 minutes.

    This was one of my first prints from x-ray film. "Faces in the Palm"

    Very nice Jim! Nice idea for a thread too. May I ask at what iso you rated the film? And IIRC you used the CSX online green, right? I ordered some Fuji green sensitive, it's on the way.

    Joe, I'm bad. I rated this at ISO 80 and yes it is the CSX Green sensitive. Here is another print. Now I believe that the film is great regardless of how you print. I print carbon transfer and love the density I get with this film but you can develop it to the density you need for your printing process. Loading, unloading and developing in a red safe light make it easy.

    Same info on this shot.

    Jim, do you mean the CXS Green film made by Agfa? Thanks.

    Yes, that is the one. I have found that just about any of the green x-ray films behave the same.I have McKesson 11x14 green and 3m 14x17 green sensitive. I shoot them all at 80.

    It's very nice of you to create this thread Jim. It will be a useful threat with lots of info for Xray user.
    @ Philippe: The green Xray is rated at 100 ISO that means it will fit to the Green Xray Lab film holder. I rated it at 80 for my application for both PT/PL and Carbon print. The film is super contrast so I usually exposed the shadow at Zone IV.
    The Blue Xray is rated at 400, and it fits to the Xray lab blue holder. That's it.

    What is nobody printing or having any success with x-ray film? Hard to believe. Here is another one. Some Lilies shot in the studio.
