    I was inspired by the work of Darren Samuelson, who shoots ultra large format photography, any one have experience shooting with x-ray film as this a cheeper solution to 8X10 film for large format cameras? As well as its development using B&W chemistry.

    I use 8x10 and 14x17 green latitude stuff from cxsonline. Emulsion coated on both sides, but fine for contact printing. Developed in pyrocat-hd, flat-bottomed tray. The threads mentioned by Roger are a good place to start.
