Ansco 30 X-RAY Film Development Formula by Tim LaytonAnsco 30 X-RAY Film Development Formula by Tim Layton The Anso 30 is a B&W X-RAY film developer was originally created for Ansco X-RAY film, Ansco Direct Copy film, and Direct Duplicating film, however, based on the elements in this formula, it also works great with modern x-ray film too. 

One of the things that quickly becomes evident when using X-ray film is the management of excessive contrast and this vintage formula will definitely help you do that along with other techniques such as pre-flashing. 

This developer has a long shelf life and so it makes it very reasonable and cost-effective to use for occasional or low volume users. 

Enjoy this formula and make sure you join my Free Analog Photography Journal so you will be updated when I add new formulas and send out my latest updates.
