    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Found the Fuji Super HR-A locally for ~$40. Guess I'll try this.

    Walking in to buy the Xray film was like going in to buy girl scout cookies, except they had only one flavor. They had all the popular sizes though. If I get good at this, I might use the 7x17 in my F&S banquet camera. I guess this is the only emulsion that is used down here.

    Probably cut this film down to 4x5 to do some tests to find out what the ISO is in Diafine. Then I might work my way towards Rodinal or Caffenol. I was told this is a high speed emulsion, so I'm guessing 400.

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    I would like to thank all you folks, who posted here and nudged me to finally try it.. While it seems to be a bit easy to scratch Xray film turns out to be rather fun and easy(and cheap) way to expriment.. i am going to order me some blue one now (tried green) to see if i can get "old look" out of it

    8x10 green kodak (full one). 1+50 Rodinal, shot as iso 100, developed for 17 minutes with constant agitation in unidrum.
    No stripping, pretty much straight scan.

    Sergei, beautiful portrait! I've always felt the x-ray film would make a great film for portrait work. Bravo! What lens for that shot?

    That's super!! I wonder why your developing times are longer than others that are processing Rodinal 1:100 for 3 or 4 minutes. This is outstanding!

    Nice, it's square or almost. Is it 14x14?

    It's cropped from original 12x18cm frame. My cartoon box camera will fall apart if I'll try to rotate it vertically so only horizontal shots are possible so far
    I bought 18x24cm film, but really old holder which supposed to be 18x24 cm is in fact 13x18. 18x24 will fit but I'll have to figure out how to hold sheet inside. Probably some thin brass frame will solve this issue.
    For now it's even better to test on half frame, until I'll make proper design and build real camera.

    Thanks. To be honest - i dont know why i used 17. Its just my "safe" number from where i normally start to experiment with film that i have no clue about. And i am too lazy to do strip tests So i just wing it.. Dullution 1+50 was a bit unusual for me, i typically work with 1+100 or 1+200, but i remembered someone using it here, so i figured - may as well (its funny how scan got a bit ripped off after saving it to 8 bit jpeg - there is no hotspot without details on his forehead in 16 bit - i .. i should've spotted it last night, but i was too tired and just wanted to get results out.. )
