    I haven't used the Adox Super Safe light. I use a good old Ruby glass bulb, as well as two 10x12 Kodak safelights with 7 watt bulb in one and a 15 watt bulb in the other. Never a problem wit any ortho film.

    Thanks Tin Can

    and yes, not only is it REAL film, it is REAL CHEAP film compared to my precious Ilford HP5 (what i usually shoot in 35 mm)...
    my feeling is: XRAY makes me able to afford shooting LF ALOT, which means more learning, which means more mastery...I tend to like the longer, more challenging, path in most areas of life... i have the patience for stuff like that!

    wish me luck--will share as soon as i have some images!

    Okay, I have a question about UNSAFE safe lights: since a lot of the red safelight filters are expensive, could I ever just put like a red glass VASE over my existing red LED "safelight" bulb...I'm a big thrifter, so I"m wondering if a $2.99 RED GLASS vase (see these all the time) placed over a less-than-safe "safelight" LED bulb would work as well as Ebaying a more costly filter...thoughts?

    Adrienne, spend your $3 here:

    These are perfectly safe for reasonable use at a normal distance. I tested these once by putting paper directly onto the light for 1 minute and it was only fogged slightly when developed - this is obviously unreasonably large exposure at very close range, so they are perfectly safe for normal use. I have found these to be 100% safe for developing x-ray film hanging about 4-5 feet over the trays.

    I use these, in a cheap reflector and bounce off ceiling or wall, usually 3 in roomy DR

    I bought 6 years ago when they were 1 watt and safer, but the 'improved' 2 watt also works
