Re: filmscanners: When if Provia 100F a poor film to scan...underwater :-7
Maybe what you are seeing isn't dust?
I don't think ProviaF uses dyes that are IR opaque, no matter how
dense... In fact, try a piece which is totally unexposed (like from the
camera leader) and see if that is at all opaque to IR. I doubt it.
