    Density lies in your choices of exposure and development technique, that's completely up to you and your methods as far as I perceive it. Best of luck to you in your X-Ray adventures.

    Thanks Stone, but that much is fairly obvious. Anyone else care to comment on how they judge their x-ray negatives?

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Does a good x-ray negative look like a good pictorial film x-ray or should it look denser because of the two emulsions?
    I aim for specific DR's for carbon printing. A densitometre is handy. Side-by-side comparisons, they look very similar. A double-sided emulsion still looks the same as single-sided film, as long as their DR's are the same.

    Sorry, I'm not a sensitometry guy. Don't you strip your negatives though? Which version "looks similar" to conventional film, the stripped or unstripped version?

    I don't strip my negatives. Looking through them they look similar to non-x-ray negatives. If stripped, half the density is removed thus they do not meet my needs for salt prints.

    Anybody who works with film, is a sensitometry guy to some degree, even if they don't own a densitometre. I'm talking about unstripped negatives. Yes, I have done some testing and the film prints best with both emulsions, therefore I do not strip.

    Don't know how it would be in Spain, but Ebay gets it to the UK from Tennessee in less than 12 days (according to the tracking 4 of which were while it was in the hands of the courier) with the Global Shipping so you pay the Customs in advance.

    Re: X-ray Film example and comparison.

    There is some MXR 11X14 G Plus on fee bay at the moment, the 11x14 seems a bit harder to get these days, anyone tried this particular film???

    Hugo and I went out to shoot on the 4th. Here are some pictures at the Riley Wilderness Park in Coto de Caza, California.
