    Anybody using Pyrocat HD with X-Ray film?


    I have read Sandy King many times. I will try Pyrocat HD Liguid glycol from Photograghers Formulary.

    I deduce from Sandy King's testing that Pyrocat HD may be good for Azo and Ilford Multigrade paper. The stain may work differently on each and perhaps in X-Rays favor.

    I ordered some today.

    Base rabbit cages trays are useful, cheap and available in large format dimension.
    Miguel, beautiful! I see the x-ray film is working very well for you.

    It's the only devloper I've used, apart from a failed experiment with Rodinal. See Mercury Photo Bureau for examples.

    Rodinal is all I have used on any film for 7 years. I am anxious to try Pyrocat HD.

    Very interesting X-Ray project and website, I put it on a slow scroll and love the flutist placement. Saw a couple a couple times. I think...

    Do you print the musician portraits?

    Yes, usually 1+150. Works like a charm.

    One advantage to RC is no sharp edges scratching other negs if shuffling.

    Save scraps for fixer checking.
    The other advantage is that you can use the corner to remind you which way was facing the lens if you're using film with emulsion on both sides. I always load mine with the rounded corner placed where the notch codes would normally go.

    Thank you. I am still setting up my darkroom so I haven't made any prints yet. Depending on whether I get any good at it is going to make a big difference when I start grant writing to finance the show — paying someone else to print increases the cost by an order of magnitude!

    I dilute 1:200, but that's for semi-stand development in a daylight tank (HP Combi+). YMMV.
