    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Yeah I upped my development a minute to 7 minutes with constant agitation (BTZS tube) for this one. After stripping it's still seems thin, but scanned okay (except for dust on the scanning element, argh). I have been meaning to do some zone testing on this stuff but haven't had time so I'm just experimenting.

    Thanks to everyone for posting to this thread. I hope that you are all printing these negatives? It would be nice to see prints!

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Hallo X-ray film shooters!
    Is anyone here, I could ask in German language. My English is too poor to express what I want to know about x-ray film and processing.

    Thanks
    George

    Hello George,
    I am not a native speaker and also quite a newcomer to XRay processing, but if you don't find anyone more experienced in both fields, drop me a PM.
    Website of sorts, as well as ipernity thing.

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Hi Randy, hallo andrios!

    My questions regarding x-ray film and processing it are as follows:
    Yesterday I visited my PD because of some pain in my knee. He take several X-ray shots of it. In this process I realised that they use some usual technical x-ray film (blue-ish) with very good rendition. I asked the assisting nurse, what kind of film and how she is processing it. She didn`t know the film brand and she told me, that aften the shot she ist throwing the cartridge in a processing mashine anf after a few minutes the film is developed. My idea was (is) to buy some x-ray film (5x7, which is the smallest format in the doctors lab), the nurse is loading it in my filmholders, I take some shots and bring the film to the doctors lab for processing. Would that work? Whats your opinion?

    George

    Is the nurse good-looking? I have done the same with 8x10 film (tho I loaded the holders) -- the lab tech enjoyed the opportunity to see something else besides bones in the images! Of course there is no contrast control thru development, at least as far as I know.

    George, I have just started using X-ray film myself. As Vaughn said, I think your images, if processed by your doctors nurse, may be very contrasty. But at least you will know then, that you need to consider different chemical/processing procedures. I believe much of the X-ray films are high contrast orthochromatic, but you will want to strive for continuous tone results, similar to what you get with modern panchromatic films. From my very limited experience, it can be achieved with the correct processing.

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    The negatives I took of my boys in open shade and landscapes under the redwoods were on Blue-sensitive X-ray film (processed at the hospital) were perfect for platinum/palladium printing (with no contrast agent needed). So they would have been a little contrasty for normal silver gelatin printing.
