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

    I use Tin Cans' suggestion above. Mine is in an old Kodak 5X7 safe-light with no glass in it, aimed up so the light bounces off the ceiling and I have a couple squares of toilet paper over it to dim / diffuse the light slightly. No fogging of my green sensitive Xray films so far.

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

    Read the reviews on their site

    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.
    LOL yes thanks that is helpful !

    Hopefully my last X-Ray Film advisory

    I have always bought fresh X-Ray most has 2 year expiry

    I don't want to ever buy off eBay, as every source seems to sell long expired

    I did warn of the end of SS (single side emulsion) KODAK Ektascan, is seems all gone, once available up to 14X17 inches

    The only SS I see 'new' is EU size, which I mostly cut down

    I think I have bought my last.....maybe

    $200 delivered a 500 sheet case of double side 8X10 last night, 4/2023 expiry

    My plan is to not ever run out

    Maybe I order more 7X17, which is great to cut to 5X7 or actually use for 7X17

    I will wait for Monday

    Japan is dumping

    I'm going to buy some X-ray film (kodak t-mat G) and the lot includes a processor. I have no idea how they work and if I can use it for X-ray or conventional photo film. The processor is like this:

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I HAD something similar, I sure hope you didn't pay much

    Those WORK if run daily and serviced by a pro company, but they are dumping it all

    I buy from here https://www.zzmedical.com/analog-x-r...-ray-film.html

    X-Ray as scenic film is USUALLY processed slower and carefully

    YMMV

    I use the red superbrightled at a distance of 8 to 10 feet to cut 8x10 Ektascan down to 3 1/4 / 4 1/4 and load it in a Graflex bagmag. No problem.

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

    Hey everyone. So I'm going to be using some xray film and purchased Fuji Super RX-N Full Speed Blue Film to use with an older 19th century tailboard camera - and was wondering if anyone narrowed down the rough ISO for it? I was planning on trying at ~100 ISO but figured I'd ask around. Also, does anyone use just a light meter or do you also place a blue filter/gel in front to get a more accurate reading? Thanks.

    Waste?

    a sheet and test with various ASA

    Sensitivity varies with time of day/color of light

    I just use my meter or preferably Sunny 16
