  2. Re: X-ray Film example and comparison.

    Wow, 69 pages devoted to the topic I started. I'm amazed!!

    Re: Fuji 4x5 instant film will all be gone

    Hey now, there ARE more of us. I too use Instant film to proof for final shooting on Transparency film, although I use 4x5 Provia, not E100G. I use maybe 50 sheets of Instant film a month.

    Kodak films, both roll and sheet are in hermetically sealed foil laminate packaging, inside the boxes. These are waterproof to such things as the moisture from defrosting. You should be just fine.

    Offset plate materials should be readily available, as offset printing is still widely used. You need to search for a "graphic arts supplies" vendor. The materials are not very expensive.

    That is a material for use in a laser-printer for making final images from digital x-ray photography, not light sensitive. You could say it is akin to printer paper, but transparent.
