    Re: X-ray Film example and comparison.

    Finally got a chance to develop my blue x-ray film this past weekend... I cut it up for use in my 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 baby Speed Graphic (got 5 sheets per 8x10 ). I developed it in a Yankee tank that I've had good luck developing 4x5s in. I used divided D-76 (Photographers Formulary recipe) for 5 minutes in each bath. Results were ok, but the grain seemed like it was unusually big/heavy--to the point it really affected the ability of it to resolve detail. That might be fine in an 8x10 neg, but it's a problem in a format this size... Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I've been developing TMax in this DD-76, and the results have been great. Do I need to try another developer?
    Cheers,
    Scott

    And 14x17 can not just be cut in half for two 7x17's -- slightly small. At least for Agfa X-ray and the 7x17 holder I have.

    For any Canadian shooters (Especially those in BC's lower mainland) there is a dealer in North Vancouver that sells Kodak and Agfa X-Ray film. It seems more expensive than the US counterparts, but they have a storefront, so you can drop by and try it out: http://www.canadianxraysupplies.com/xray-film.php

    Does anyone here have experience with Kodak Min-R EV or Kodak Min-R S Mammography Xray film?

    gth
    NO
    But mammography film is supposedly single side emulsion
    Sizes seem to be limited
    And more costly
    If it's cheap to you, please try it and report

    Like I said- use what you have- HC110 would seem like a pretty sure bet.

    Yes. I've developed xray film (green latitude) in pyrocat-hd, rodinol, D-76, and D-19. All diluted more than normal, especially D-19. I'm using this film just for carbon transfer printing. You shouldn't have any problems in the developers that you have on hand... I've never used diafine, though.
