    Out With My 14x17 DIY Camera & XRAY Film

    This video I made covers more than one area, so I wasn't quite sure which thread to put it in. I'm out with my 14x17, shooting XRAY film, developing it in my darkroom, and then making a Kallitype print from one of the negatives. Cheers!

    Great video! Even though I shoot a lot of 8x10, I can't even begin to imagine dealing with this size film!

    Andy's humble post and video shows great talent in many areas.

    He made his own 14X17 and uses 14X17 X-Ray to make a wonderful image.

    His talent as instructional Artist and cheerful teaching skills are World Class, nobody I have seen is better.

    Andy makes huge contact prints look effortless.

    Simple tools, glass pressure plate, buckets for washing.

    Andy is an Actual Expert!

    This actually made me emotional. No one has ever said that to me before (okay, maybe my mum did a few times ) Thank you very much!

    Thank you, Alan. It is indeed a big step up from 8x10....especially in my teeny tiny darkroom! But, I've learnt how to make it work as best as I can...need a new counter though. After 20 years of abuse and spills, it's looking pretty ugly.

    Thanks for the video. Good looking camera. I suggest you carry through with a much larger dark cloth. Mine for 7x17 is 5x8 feet. You may need one 6x8 or 7x10 for really good coverage. Another suggestion - leave the dark cloth on the camera at all times, especially when inserting the film holder through removing it.
    I like your single tray method - practical and space saving.
