I never did see the reference to this nutty thing. An X ray camera makes no sense. Now anyone who would put the two in the same sentence knows nothing about x rays. 1. To produce an X ray, you need a very large source of electricity. 2. You then need a machine that will convert the electrical sorce into X rays. The machine needs to change the electrical waves into a stream of electric impulses that can be forced thru a vacumm tube that strick a source and produce X-rays. 3. This process produces a large amount of heat which needs an oil bath and fans to disapate it. 4. Now there is a great amount of sheiling around the machine to keep the x rays from going all over the place. 5.Now you have a fairly large object. 6.Now since x-rays can bounce around, the person with the camera would have to be encased in lead in order to keep from getting zaped. 7. An x ray camera would have no advantage unless you wanted to see inside something and then you would only get a picture of shadows, as you have seen on an x ray film. 8. The principle and use of x rays are that they penetrate solid substances, but some of the substance absorbs some of the x-rays. Then you get get a blackness on say skin that don't absorb many x rays and a whitness in bones, which absorb a lot of x rays. You can't make a picture of a face. these x rays then stick a phoporic plate which actually prints the film. (With the exceptions of very small bones such as fingers, which do not use the phosphoric plate) The Phosporic plate produces light which means you are actually using ligh to make the film. You then wash the excess silver off the film and stabilize the jel that the silver is in. Just like photographic film. Foroscopy works the same except that you are watching the process as it happens instead of making a film. So who ever says X ray camera is ignorant of x rays and just an imaginitive nut.
