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.

    Thanks all for the feedback. Are you all using continuous agitation?

    Triple ugh. Yes. grams, not milligrams.
    I've been thinking too much of millimeters.

    Yes, I use the lowest setting my Jobo.

    Andrew, it was actually Sergei's work that sold me on the idea of trying Xray film in the Jobo. I'd be lying if I said I knew why I didn't get a scratched and mottled mess of 8x10 sheets. I don't and I'm happy with that. I might try and figure it out when I have more time on my hands. If you have a Jobo, give it a shot.

    Ribbed/perforated, it tears...

    So the black bag in it's own is enough to protect from light? Even if my box is next to a window?

    Depends on if I can get an 11x14 holder.

    Looking for a CHEAP 8x10 and 11x14. Starting there, and going up when I can find a lens that is for ULF and also isn't as much as my car... (And my car has 240,000 miles on it, and the company (saab) went out of business) so that tells you how much it's worth.... Right now it's just an experiment with a rudimentary "box camera"

    The 8x10 hasn't arrived yet.

    BTW... WHY is X-ray film so cheap? It had double emulsion, shouldn't it have twice the cost?

    I suppose because not as much goes into it compared to panchro film... sensitizing dyes, anti-halation layer, and probably other layers for this and that.
    ndg, I don't have a jobo as I like to keep things simple/primitive. There must be something unique about jobo drums, I guess.
    On another note, I've been using both single and double-sided films, and I prefer the double-sided green stuff, as far as tones go, but not as sharp as single-sided. It's razor sharp.

    What's the single sided called?

    This is a contact print from an X-Ray negative I made this month with the new Fuji 240mm Lens for my 8x10.
