    Re: X-ray Film example and comparison.

    While researching sources, I came across Konica-Minolta and Sony x-ray film. I wonder who is actually making it? Fuji?

    Nerdy question: Since the film is coated on both sides, should we treat the film as two sheets for minimum developer and fixer life? That seems abundantly clear, but wanted to get confirmation.

    Thanks!

    Konica-Minolta, Agfa/Gevart, Kodak and Fuji are the primary sources it seems.

    I would also think that you replenish for the square inches of emulsion. If it is on both sides of a film, then you figure 2x the replenishment of a single coated film.

    Thanks Gene. I use one shot developers. I'll double up on the volume.

    If Konica-Minolta can stay in the x-ray film business, why not the scanner and wonderful wee 35mm lens business??????????????

    I believe they sold their medical imaging business, possibly to GE. They sold their camera business to Sony. Their excellent light-meters are made by yet another company. No one makes their scanners. Many of the current Sony and Zeiss lenses sold thru Sony would be the same as previously sold under the Minolta brand. AFAIK, the current Sony digital slr cameras use the same Minolta Maxxum lens mount designed for Minolta Maxxum 35mm film SLR cameras.

    I just received 500 sheets of 11x14 green. Now i can play. This film is by McKesson and it is a medium speed green. With this much film for about .15 a sheet I can experiment to my hearts content. I'll post some prints of my tests when I get them done.

    That price list is 2001. I wonder if they keep the same prices.
