    Thanks Andrew. I would look for green filter then. I'm loving this film. If handled and processed properly it is as good as panchromatic film.

    A real boring photo but I didn't think anything would come out on my first try with xray film.

    I don't get why people don't think that x-ray film is not as good as panchromatic film. It is orthochromatic, that's the only real difference. It does not respond to a red filter, because ortho film is blind to red light. This makes it easy to develop because you can do it under a ruby light. It was/is called a ruby light because it is pure red. Easiest way to tell if the light is red enough is with a compact disc (cd). Turn on red safe light, hold cd up so you sight across the bands and see what colors are present. This is also helpful for cutting film to fit other sizes, and for loading film holders.

    They are two different things and both have a purpose, just like digital and analogue.

    I posted this over at the other xray thread. Carbon transfer print from Kodak Ektascan. Very diute Pyrocat-HD. I really like how the grass and foliage were rendered in light tones. This film is sharp.

    One of those shots where everything went wrong, but somehow I still got a picture.
    Over exposed, under developed, scratches, drips, bubbles...

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Thanks for the info Premortho. I love what i'm getting with X-ray film right now. I think i'll stick with it because it's much cheaper and if i handle it correctly when processed i would get the same result as using a cheap panchromatic film. This film actually reminds me of my 4x5 Arista edu film. I just have to tame the contrast and i'm good with it.
