When I collected my x-rays I was informed that a good way of capturing the x-rays digitally was to set them on a light box and take pictures of them from above using a normal digital camera. Therefore this is was I decided to do. I set up a camera on a tripod using the horizontal tripod arm and placed the x-rays onto the light box. I used Live View mode within the camera to set up the shot and then switched back to the viewfinder to finalise.
The results were great and ideal for what i wanted to do. The images looked like proper x-rays and were the right way round in terms of being a positive or negative way. Also being that it was taken with a normal digital camera the file sizes would be that of a normal file can could mean printing at a greater size that normal prints are subjected to.
