    Ummm. The term used by W.M. no doubt? I'll have to try that as well with some D76 1:1 for 1/2 hour.

    I had these interesting light streaks also when I shot a model some time back. It is a nice effect. I couldn't figure out what caused it but it was nice as are these images. Thanks for posting them.

    George,

    I think W.M. might have liked X-Ray film. The creative possibilities seem endless, and it's cheap enough to play with. I want to try my hand at negative retouching, among other things.

    I think I did overdevelop this shot. The shadow details (hair) is ok, but the highlight is too bright. Am I right? Or because there is only one light source (sun light)?

    No. That's the way the stuff acts. It's why some people strip off one side.

    I know what caused mine, a tiny piece of wood broke of on top of the holder (about 1/3 of an inch wide)

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Harvard Univ. says someone stole 500 to 600 lbs. of old X-ray film.

    Watch out for deals in the Boston area which seem too good to be true. Chances are they're just trying to get the silver out, but you never know!

    Re: X-ray Film example and comparison.

    @ Scott: their Indux films do come in 10x12, but I don't know yet (I asked Foma) what these Industrial X-Ray films are!...

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Plain Jane Green xray 8x10 film from CSXOnline.
    Shot ISO 80. Schneider Symmar-S 300mm. Shadows on III. A dull day, easily within 5 zones.
    Developed D76 1:1 in a Uniroller (kinda like a Jobo) for 20 minutes.
    Stripped.
    Not prints -- scanned, then P.S. edited and pseudo-toned.

    I like the results. It's an aesthetic thing. Definitely not something you'd get from modern Pan film.
