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

  1. #6511

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

    651 pages of posts on shooting with xray film makes it really hard to find an easy simple entry point into the game...

    Has anyone created a brief "Getting started with xray films" PDF?

    Or should I just order a ton of fuji film and then start looking for chemicals and processing info?

    On page #638, posting #6378, Tim Meisburger summarized a lot of information and wrote a "primer" for shooting with X-Ray film.

    If you wish to stray beyond what he has summarized, then reading the entire thread and taking notes is about the best possible solution to see what others have done.

    Thank you so much Kino!

    Irony of all irony, I think the Fuji HR-U I bought was fogged by... an X-ray machine!

    There is a band of density across the middle of both of the sheets I shot just now and processed.

    I expected crappy exposures, scratches and finger prints, but not a band of exposure.

    I will update this post with images as soon as the negatives dry.

    It could very well be from being xrayed. I had banding on IR sheet film, but it ran the width of the film, not the length, like yours. And there was more than one band.

    Guess I should pull a sheet from the center of the pack and process that in total darkness to see if it's all hosed.

    Andrew O'Neill, Thank you that's great to know. I'll continue happily buying as much as possible from my local ebay ��

    I'd start with searching for whatever cheap film you can find locally. Search for that here. Then search for whatever developer you have on hand.
    Give that a try.
    If you don't like the look but want to go deeper down the rabbit hole then comeback to fine tune.

    I only had Fuji's superprodol years ago and tried that and it worked well. I'm currently using hc110 but only because I was given a bottle from a friend.

    Can it be pressure?
