    The best way to use the double sided stuff, in my experience, is in a vertical tank to avoid scratches. I built one out of acrylic for 11x14.

    I agree with Jim

    2X X-Ray works fine, it does scratch if not loaded carefully. I learned how to NOT scratch even with my clumsy fingers

    I recommended the above 2x, buy the cheaper Green as it's way cheaper. Always buy the cheaper, blue of green means almost nothing for our uses.

    I also recommend the same thing in 14X17" as it does fit 14X17" plastic Medical DDS https://www.zzmedical.com/analog-x-r...-ray-film.html

    Which is almost exactly the same price per sq inch

    I have cut 2X down to fit Hasselblad sheet film holders, and was amazed how sharp the tiny images were.

    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 used it but darkroom work is on back burner right now. I'd like to recover cost and shipping.

    I've also cut it down for 5x7 and that leaves you with a 1" piece that makes super sharp images in 35mm cameras loaded in the red lighted dim/darkroom.

    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 learn to do good work on 2 sided in film hangers in skinny tanks first.

    Thanks for the reminder. Bought 200 sheets of 14x17 film because...well I have a 14x17 holder here now.

    Nothing else, but that's a good start!

    Green is orthochromatic, blue is just blue-sensitive. That should make a huge difference in tonality. Anyway, just ordered some green Fujifilm from ZZ. Worst case scenario will have lots of practice film.

    Look for Agfa Mamoray HDR-C Plus...its single sided. Looks like it comes in 24x30 cm.

    When it comes to learning ultra-large format, having cheap practice film is necessarily part of the best case scenario!

    Do you get Fujifilm in 8x10" or 18x24cm?
    Thx

    8x10. Wouldn't have much use for 18x24. Otherwise would have gone for the single sided mammography film.
