Yesterday I went to the local photo shop to buy some paper and chemicals. I was also looking for a 'Staticmaster' brush; it was recommended in an article on dust control by Tom Halfhill.
The salesman said he had never heard of a Staticmaster brush and only had Ilford static cloths. When I said that my readings had led me to believe that wiping negs with a cloth was a bad idea, and that a brush was the way to go, he looked at me like I was an idiot and said that he would never use a brush for negatives, only a cloth.
So, what is the opinion out there?
