    In general this is so not true. All I ever use in my 8X10 is green X-ray film and it is usally tack sharp. Also it can be bought for less than $27.00. per 100 sheet box.

    Could you please tell me what type/brand/website you got this film from? I'd love to have some of your notes on how you expose this film/develop it.

    Is the x-ray film orthochromatic enough for safelights?

    I generally rate green x-film at 125 develop in D-76 1:1 for 7 minutes. Temp is 74 F. I print with straight Palladium almost all the time and I couldn't be happier with this combo. You will have to do a little experimenting to find out what is best for you, but at this price it makes experimenting fun. Always remember to be gentle, it scratches easily.

    Thanks!
    Does this film have a code notch? I usually develop my 8x10 in daylight roll tubes.

    The emulsion is coated on both sides so there is no need for a code notch. I've never tried to use daylight tubes but I suspect there may be issues with development on the side touching the tube. Uneven development streaks?Maybe someone else has tried it.

    There's a couple of us shooting Agfa Scopix and some results over at X-ray Film on Flickr.

    There is a useful thread on the LF forum about xray film which answers your questions.

    While the X-ray film is either blue sensitive or orthochromatic, it is much more sensitive to light than photo papers are, so theoretically you CAN use a safelight, but in practice, it would need to be dimmer than for photo paper. I have fogged blue sensitive xray film using my red graphic-arts safelight, which is fairly bright.

    I used once a film called "monitor film" brought from an x-ray company in Berlin, Germany (they can be located via the web). This film is orthochromatic and coated on only one side. It is quite fast; I remember I exposed it at 500 ASA. But obviously, if you use a yellow filter you have to increase exposure for at least two stops (possibly more).

    Put some in the camera and in front of the microwave oven and develop and see what you get

    It fogs under most safelights. Theoretically if you used the same lens to print the film as you did to shoot it you would end up with no double image effect. It has a tendency to get very dense and contrasty. You might try a pull process.
