Before cleaning a film strip with an anti-static brush we recommend you to remove rough dust from the film strip using compressed air. Otherwise it might happen that rough dust particles get stuck at the anti static brush and will be transferred to the next film strip.
When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
