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

    Would Fuji IX film through an FIP7000 processor be suitable for images?

    If you want continuous tones, probably not.

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

    I rushed out today when it looked like there might be some sunshine. If Iíd had a bit more time I would have tried for a better composition, and more precise focusing, but this was really just another quick test shot. This is Pyrocat HD 1:1:150 (20:20:2250) in 11x14 tray for 8 minutes @70F. I pre-soaked for 5 minutes with nearly constant agitation. I agitated constantly for the first minute in the developer, plus for 5 seconds every 30 seconds thereafter. The scan was made in a sleeve on Epson 4990. I bumped the exposure slightly in LR, but itís basically a straight scan. Exposure was 1/10 f45, Symmar 210mm, UV filter only. I shot the second negative with a yellow filter, and will develop that tomorrow, but I think this dilution and agitation are pretty close.

    If that sky is supposed to be very slightly cloudy, then I think it looks great David!

    Yep, those are clouds. I’m going to stick to this procedure.

    It looks as if you have found your exposure/development combo which works well for you.

    Thanks Jim. If I recall correctly you also have been using Pyrocat with x-ray film. I would be interested in your procedures, if you don’t mind sharing them again. This thread is very hard to search.
    Best,
    Dave

    Well done, the image looks great! This certainly seems to be working very well.

    Thanks Koraks. Hereís the second negative, shot with a medium yellow filter and a stop added exposure. On this one I used 1:1:200 dilution (12:12:2400), for 10 minutes, with continuous agitation for the first minute, and 5 seconds agitation every 30 seconds thereafter. There is more tone in the partly cloudy skies, so I think using a yellow filter could be useful.

    My procedure is very similar to yours except I use 1.5+1.5+100 in trays and develop totally by inspection. My safelight is 6+feet from the tray, and is turned on after what I have estimated is 75% fo development time. My agitation technique consists of lifting 3 corners in succession each 30 seconds.
