One thing to note about slides is that when you store them in an archival sheet, the film never touches the sheet since it sits isolated in the mount. This is not the case when you store film in a sleeve. Any dirt on the film will make it's way into the sleeve surface and ultimately could scratch the film when removed from the sleeve. I mount my own slides, which eliminates the lab from screwing up that step. My latest print film from Custom Process in Berkeley had freakin' huge water spots on two frames. Really PO'd me. The latest E6 from the New Lab was much better, but I detected two small specs of some sort out of 5 rolls developed. Generally I never see any artifact from the New Lab, but I suspect with the bad economy the company isn't running as tight of a ship. They already dropped Saturday processing. > -----Original Message----- > From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of > Arthur Entlich > Sent: Sunday, May 05, 2002 6:46 PM > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: New to the list > > > > > > Are negs more prone than slides to defects _as they come from the lab_? > > Or just as they age, especially as they go in and out of the > holder that > > feeds them to the scanner?
