[filmscanners] Re: SS120 - getting dust out

"Barbara White" <barbara@barbarawhitephoto.com> asked: "Thanks to
everyone who offered suggestions. I'm thinking that because I'm scanning
at a high resolution (4000) perhaps dust is showing up that I can't see
on the negs, even with a loupe. So maybe now my question should be - how
to clean negs other than blowing them off with air?"

The spots may not be dust at all--they may be surface imperfections on
the film. Some scanners are much more susceptible to showing these
defects than others. The suggestion of the Polaroid Dust & Scratch
Removal filter is a good one, particularly for the very small little
spots that are such a pain to clone or "heal" away in Photoshop. Give it
a try.
