    Red, because the film has no sensitivity to red, but some to green.

    Jim, Another inspection question do you use reflection or transmission inspection? I learned normal inspection from Michael Smith and Paula Chamlee primarily based on reflection, but occasionally using the green light as a back light. I'm doing my Fuji mammo film now using a SP-810 tray and opening it up for the first time at 5 minutes, I worry about someone not nocking and entering the communal darkroom. Do you use trays, hangers, or something else?

    I usually use trays. Inspection is by reflection off the reverse side looking primarily for good density in the highlights . The shadows are extremely difficult to see, especially in my 90's.

    My experience is that shadows are sometimes hard to see in your 40's and 50's or at least they were/are for me. Thanks for the info.

    I'm ready to try it out, looks like Fuji has a new improved version called the:

    Fuji Super HR-T Medium Speed Green 8x10 X-Ray Film

    Does anyone know if this will fit an 8x10 holder with no cutting?

    I am gearing up on some PT/PD prints this fall, even changing my old homemade Lightbox into LED. Bostick Sullivan emailed me and said to make sure I have about 2+ stops over on regular film.

    Since what I've been reading about x-ray film, its nice and contrasty so would like to try it out without breaking the piggy.

    It will fit if it is 20.3 cm x 25.4 cm. You may have to buy larger nd cut down.

    Ohhh? I did notice that my dentists went from film to digital. And when I got xrays for a very bad sprain wrist, it was digital as well. Kinda neat that you can see your cavities almost as soon as he takes an xray of it instead of waiting.

    Will have to check it out.

    Today is "build a new UV LED box day". Ripped out the old UV black lights flourescents. That thing go SO HOT I had to put foil in the box, and a small fan when I turned it on.
