    one shot was with xray film the other shot with delta 100

    i did two shots today one with green senstive xray film, the other with ilford delta 100, both were exposed at 1/15 sec 14in. brass petzval, both at iso 100, the reason i was doing this was because is there really that much of a difference to justify me paying 90 dollars for 25 sheets compared to 35.00 for 100 sheets, tell me which was done with xray and which was done with regular film and why you think so. excuse all the damn dust.

    I'm thinking that the second one is the x-ray film. Slightly less contrast...

    I'll say the first one is xray... is there a prize for guessing? Very difficult to see, but there are some subtle differences. In a case like this it seems like it doesn't matter which film. It would though, if you wanted a dark sky. It's nice having xray, conventional, and IR film with me when I'm shooting.

    First!
    As for difference between X-ray and regular film, it might be more pronounced with other subject matter, like portraits.
    Still, an example like this does give one pause.

    And the answer is......................................the first one is xray film : ) for what im going to be using my 8x10 for i think xray film will be fine for it, of course i wouldnt want to use xray for everything, tried that one already didnt work out to well, i know regular film would have been better, but for the next few projects i will be working on, the xray film will be fine. thanks for everyone's input

    Yeah, first is x-ray film. Interesting that both are acceptable to my eyes. I think if I can control the scratches I'm going to use x-ray for portraits, still life, and such. Then use normal film when I need maximimum sharpness.

    How are you developing your x-ray film to avoid scratches?

    I did the same thing over the weekend. Same shot with Tri-X 320 and green sensitive x-ray film. I thought that there would be a big difference in a high contrast scene.

    Both tray developed, but the Tri-X was developed inHC110 and x-ray in Rodinal 1:100. Not that big of a inference really.

    both of mine were souped in d76. i process mine in trays as well, I wear gloves when loading the film in the holders to avoid fingerprints and scratches, before i process the film in the trays, i put 8x10 sheets of glass in the bottoms of each tray, after processing just wash and hang to dry, dont squeegie. since i have been doing these things my negs have been virtually scratch free. btw very nice shots shawn
