    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    I make guides of matte board and tape them in place. I cut one way, put it away, make a new guide and cut the rest. I find a chopper blade works for me with a presser-down-ruler. one at a time.

    Very funny Sergei! My 4's work fine, but those 5's are being stubborn, particularly when trying to run them with a timer. What I really need to do is stop taking pics of myself, very boring! And tedious.

    To make matters worse my good Cobal 3 is acting up.

    Randy, could you describe your ziplock bag procedure? I can't understand why it's not working for you.

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Thanks for your concern. I am getting a lot of scratches with X-Ray no matter how I do it. Crappy hands are half the problem. Last night, as a test, I processed a 5X7 FP4 neg in my usual gallon Ziploc and it came out great.

    As I understand it, x-ray film does not have the built in hardeners that most normal film has. I would like to try adding a hardener to the x-ray process when I figure out what and when to use.

    Thanks!

    Raffay......
    Here's what I did. I took a piece of my 12x20 FP4 to my friend who has a tool & die shop. He cut a piece of stainless the exact size, beveled the edges, and smoothed all surfaces. It matched perfectly. I then take 14x36 x-ray film, put a piece of 20# bond paper on that piece, and put the stainless piece on the paper and use a utility knife to cut along the edges of the stainless piece. Out comes my 12x20 piece of x-ray and I also get a piece of 11x14 from the leftover piece. BTW, the stainless is 60/1000 thick.

    You do what you want Sergei, but I want you to stick to shooting your wonderful lady friends, after those images, landscapes pale in comparison.

    How are you doing 4X10? With dividers, cut down dark slide or dedicated camera? Maybe there is another way...

    I do like the sky in this image!
