the found medical film produced image! LOOK FOR URSELF : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have finally played with the medical film. My first headache was trying to cut some of those 8x10 sheets into 4x5. I have lost the size tab on my paper cutter making this task difficult in total darkness. I first exposed two sheets with a red filter #25. I got nothing.

I was about to give up but then figured the film may not be sensitive to red. So I cut and loaded a few under my safe light. I exposed one @ ISO 50 and the other 100. I GOT IMAGE!

THE FILM DOES NOT HAVE EMULSION ON BOTH SIDES IT DOES LOOK CONTRASTY BUT MY PROCESSING IS MOSTLY TO BLAME (I used HC-110 mixed 1:6 75 degrees, constant agitation for 10 minutes, yeah I know its a lot, I wasn't expecting to get anything)

Now I have to test the other 1000 sheets. The rest of the boxes are a Dupont product. They are blue based. I am hoping they will provide similar results.

See here for two scans from negs. I might attempt a print this weekend. Ifn I can fit in my tight beer drinking holiday schedule

correction! I shot the top image @ 100 and the bottom @ 25 (not ISO 50). I will assume correct exposure would be around 64-100 if I had not pushed the processing.
