    Re: Images shot on X-ray film Continuous / Drum Processing

    Hi Tim,

    I've been using rating my single-sided Kodak B/RA at 50iso and processing for 6 minutes in Rodinal 1:100. Unicolor drums. Approx. 2 min. presoak in the drum. YMMV.

I have been wanting to try drum processing for a bit so I picked up a Jobo Expert Drum and a manual roller to give it a shot. I'm using Kodak Mammography film (Ektascan) so I don't need to worry about 2-sided emulsion. I have been using Rodinal/Adonal at 100:1 and getting fairly good (but not consistent) results in the trays.

    Have any of you tried drum + continuous agitation to process your x-ray film?

    I figure I'll try the following:
    1. Rodinal 100:1 for 9 minutes at 20 degrees. 5 minute pre-soak.
    2. XTOL 1:1 for 7 minutes at 20 degrees. No pre-soak.


    I also have HC-110 (liquid form) and D-76 (powder form) here as possibilities.


    Any other suggestions?

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    I've developed single-sided Kodak B/RA in BTZS tubes. Works very well. Pyrocat-HD and Obsidian Aqua. I don't bother with a presoak.

    I use the Jobo 3005 expert drum, green film with emulsion on both sides and Rodinal. Develop 4(four) 8x10 sheets at a time. 4 cc of Rodinal per 8x10 sheet. That gives me 16cc of rodinal. I mix that to give me 800 cc of devloper (so 1:50). 10 cc of Rodinal per 8x10 sheet is the eecommendation but 4 cc works for me. I tried 2 cc of Rodinal per 8x10 sheet and did not like my results. Jobo recommends 800 cc of developer for 4 sheets in the 3005. I do not presoak but develop for 6 min. I like the images I get.

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    SergeiR and ndg, you both get consistent, even development? How on earth does developer get to the backside evenly? I've only done rotary with BTZS tubes and I have no experience with Jobo. In the BTZS tube, the film sits very loosely, developer never gets back there to do its job evenly. Usually end up with a mottled mess.

    Wondered that myself...

    Also, stupid question, I've only shot 4x5 but picked up some 11x14 cheap and I'm trying understand THE BOX it's AGFA and is perforated and right there on the ripped perf is the film in a plastic black bag, I know they are light resistant but not PROOF as far as I understood?

    Anyway shouldn't it come in a normal 3 part light trap box?

    Seems strange?... Or is this how all ULF is?

    I use only Kodak X-Ray and there is no perf, but a ribbed section you are supposed to cut or tear through the middle of, not below it. I still screw it up after 4 boxes, but Kodak has enough 'bag' even cutting below the right spot to fold it up and slide it into the top load box.

    11x14 Xray? If so, then yes. That is how it comes. Don't worry, it's pretty safe. I've even got a box of 14x17 and have had no problems with light leaks. Are you going to shoot it as is or cut down to 4x5?
