There is no great modification which ensures the film says perfectly flat
so this is can still be a problem with the outermost edge of the outermost
frame of a strip but it depends upon how much curl the film has at the edge
in the first place. I have terrible problems with Tri-X but other emulsions
that are flatter like XP2 and many of the thinner based films do not present
any problems. Only solution I've found is to cut the last neg and place it
in a glass mount if sharpness across the entire frame is needed.
