    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Question:
    Does anyone have any experience with Fuji HR-U 30 or Fuji RX?

    I really like the Fuji HRT and Kodak B/RA images in Caffenol examples by Holdenrichards and the Kodak MXG images in Rodinal 1:100 by SMBooth. Unfortunately, the Fuji HR and Fuji RX are the only available films offered in Korea (that I can see). I could get some Afga Green or Blue X-ray films from e-bay, but the best I've seen with those are Agfa + Pyro or Obsidian Agua. Both of those will be hard for me to do here in Korea. Rodinal, Diafine, Caffenol, XTOL, D-76, and even HC-110 would be better.

    A box of 8x10 is $80, so I don't mind importing the films. I could get 2 or 3 boxes + shipping for cheaper. Problem is I can't find a lot of people that ship internationally.

    Lee - if you don't mind paying all the shipping fees and such and can arrange reimbursement as a Paypal "gift" payment, I'd be happy to send you as much Fuji HRT as you want at cost.

    Bryan, you're a godsend! I'm waiting to hear back from a seller on the bay. If it falls through, I'll take you up on that offer.

    Cool. I'll have to check how much can fit in a medium flat-rate box. If you only want one box I could probably ship it in a padded envelope - but I think that's a bit uneconomical either way with shipping costs being what they are (they've gone up recently so I'm not 100% sure how much it'll be).

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Just a question about 8x10 green film. I just purchased a box of 100 sheets of Green X-ray film. I would like to put into the freezer what I don't use. What can anyone tell me about storing my un-used film ( room temp.) film? Is there any type of storage devices out there? I only have the box that the film came in, and nothing else. thanks, R.W.Delung

    I took the 8x10 film out of its box and put it inside a 100 sheet photo paper box. Taped it shut, slipped it inside very large ziplock bag and stuck in the freezer. The box that the green 8x10 film came in is pretty bad.

    I think I'm finally getting the hang of this x-ray film thing (HR-T). There is a narrow tonal range in the photo, because,... x-ray film has a narrow tonal range.

    Very nice! What did you rate it at? I'm probably going to order 3 boxes of the same stuff.

    160. I started out at 100, moved to 200, eventually settled on 160.

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Has anyone heard of Fuji HR-A (~$50) or HR-U30 (~$55)? This is all the Fuji that's available in Korea.

    Kodak MX-G (~$60) and Agfa ORTHO CP-G Plus (~$55) are also available in Korea.

    Prices are for 8x10, 100 sheet boxes. I guess I could experiment, but I'd like to go with information that forum members have already worked with. I could also buy Fuji HR-T from eBay ($32 x3 = $96 + $64 shipping $160 / 3 = $53). Not much savings, but they are tried and tested emulsions.
