    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.

    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.

    @ Randy and @ Vaughn

    Hey friends, that are really helpful answers.
    Im thinking to go 5x7 with my Sinar because the difference of the rear frame holder is not to big compared to 4x5. And cheaper too. The format adapter plus the complete back incl. groundglass is not very expensive today in used condition. I have to look for a not very contrasty film too - I think there is some to buy. A 200 ISO type film should be the right one.
    Im glad that someone else let process the x-ray film at the doctors lab too. BTW, the nurse isnt really good looking but that fact is not very important.
    Thank you for helping with X-ray photography.

    Orthochromatic film would be perfect for classical portraits - white faces, black lips - I love that old fashioned look.
