    Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Made some portraits yesterday in my festival tent, just for fun and to demo the "old" camera. Used x-ray film for obvious cost reasons. The tent is a perfect lightbox and even adds a bit of a catchlight in the eyes. Here's one image I made - background is the gridwall and small silver prints I had on display.

    I was pleased to find that it is possible to order a single 100 sheet box of 5x7" x ray film from ZZMedical, although it seems only the blue sensitive stuff is available one box at a time. I ordered one box to have a stock of 5x7. I've been cutting down 8x10 sheets of green sensitive to 5x7 for use in my Burke & James 5x7, but it will be nice to have some ready to go in the 5x7 size.

    This? https://www.zzmedical.com/5x7-in-fuji-x-ray-film.html

    Shipping is almost as much as the film.

    I don't think ZZ had this before

    Yes, that is what I ordered, and with UPS Ground shipping to me in CA it was $52.17. The shipping does seem a bit extreme but it still offers a lot of shooting opportunities for a reasonable price, and I've had luck developing the green stuff so far.

    I have a box of the RX-N 5x7. It is about 1.5mm too wide for a standard holder. PLease let us know if this is still true with the current stock. The ref no. n the box is 47410 - 19284. It is 13x18 mm.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    7 X 17 X-Ray film has this problem also.

    First shot where i had some success. 8x10 Carestream MXG metered at ISO 80(shadows are a bit thin so I will probably rate it lower next time). Developed in replenished xtol for 9min at 70-72 degrees.

    I'll be mildly annoyed if I have to cut 1.5mm off the film because my hope was to avoid cutting the stuff down in general. Although aren't there metric 13x18cm film holders that have the same external dimensions as "normal" 5x7" holders, such as the ones by Fidelity that I have? Maybe I should buy a few of those if it is oversized.
