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

    the link above is to 14x17 at 86 cents a sheet. Wow. Might have to build a 14x17 so I can afford to shoot film...hahaha...not funny. seriously tempting. I think I will stick to 8x10 for now, and...
  2. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Someone was looking for some Ektascan B/RA to finish a project. I have a little (under 20 sheets) if that's helpful let me know, it is 8x10 and several years at room temp, it worked fine the last I...
  3. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    You can cut X ray under a dim red light, typically. If you do it right 8x10 --> 2 sheets 5x7's and a 1" strip which fits into a 35mm camera. I've made a few tiny format images that way. The image...
  4. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Nice Ikebana-like flower portraits!

    Sad Ektascan maybe is nearing the end. I had mixed success with it. I have a little left for when I restart my LF work but I’m probably going to be making my...

    Also, in re-furbing some old holders, I noticed that some of them had internal springs that had a velvet covering and pushed a flap up into an area relieved into the opposite piece of wood. And,...

    Re: DIY Filmholders

    What about a thin steel sheet in the middle and use magnets to tack the film down in the corners/edges? I did this in a round pinhole large format camera made of a pet food can. It held 1 to 3...

    Re: My New Darkrrom

    That's a nice looking set up. I'm currently "darkroomless" and miss it. 5x7 and 8x10 contact prints are hard to beat. but, I often feel like there's so much more information on the film than you...

    Re: advice for a 8x10 setup for portrait

    The intrepid camera folks have a nice new 8x10. They've made a light source/film holder/enlarger adapter back for their 4x5. Something similar could be done for 8x10 to make enlargements that...

    Re: Need help printing Carestream EB/RA

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

    Well, it’d be a shame to lose it, but I think a high contrast fine grain Ortho film would be easier to make than a pan film.
  12. Re: Need Advice on 16x20 cameras and film from owners/users

    Would multiple exposures from 8x10 satisfy this urge to make enormous contact prints?
    The reason I ask is that I once got my hands on a ?72mm? super angulon on a Sinar Lensboard for 1/2 an hour and...

    Poll: Re: Poll: most used ULF formats

    Does my 10x24 pinhole camera count? I put in 3 pieces of 8x10 film. It's made of a metal can ~10" dia. and the distortion is "interesting." If not, subtract one vote from "other."
  16. Re: Need Advice on 16x20 cameras and film from owners/users

    I know where there's a copy camera mounted in a building/darkroom if you are serious about going bigger. I think the vacuum back on that is something like 30x30" You'd have to mount in a trailer...
