    Re: X-ray film develop and fix......

    I just asked someone they sell xray film on ebay,... the green is about 400asa and blue highspeed is 100asa. Soooooo useful.

    I can use a IR light bumb for a darkroom, can't I?

    Isn't the entire IR spectrum invisible to the human eye?

    I just use my regular safe light, but I minimise the 'out of the box' time as it appears to cause very very minor exposure that is only noticeable when the film is partially exposed to safe light, e.g. if the edge of a sheet of film sticks out of the stack, or is covered by a piece of card or paper, it develops differently.

    As for developer I just use Ilford LC29 at 1:29, with my RX-U it needs around 4mins at 50ISO and 8mins at 400ISO
    Regular Ilford multi Fix at 1:4 for around 4 mins also.

    Very minimal agitation for both steps, I just flip the dev bag (zip loc bag) every 30secs and give it a jiggle.
