    I've been experimenting with Ektar colour neg. film with a view to using it regularly in place of transparancy. One thing I've noticed is how transparency film comes back from the lab with a fair amount of dust on it, despite being in transparent sleeves. Yet this dust problem does not seem to occur with colour negative film.
    Has anyone else noticed this?...Is there something inherent in transparency film that attracts dust, where colour negative doesn't?

    I can't say I've noticed - although it's possible that the plastic used for the base might not be as susceptible to static as that used for trannies...

    Never...sounds like the lab is situated in a pillow factory?
    You didn't say if the dust was embedded in the emulsion or just laying on the surface.
    I've had other minor faults but not dust in my years of publishing.

    I'm talking about usually very small bits of surface dust on the film when the strip of trannies is taken from its plastic sleeve and inserted into the scanner, resulting in an irritating amount of time spent retouching on screen.
    For some reason I don't have this problem with Ektar colour neg. following the same procedure.
    The lab is a reputable one praised in these forums.
    I've thoroughly cleaned the scanner surfaces so I'm sure the problem is not there.
