The current Kodak film base seems to shed dust very well, but it also seems to curl very badly. I have the same problems described above. The humidity h ere seldom gets above 50%, and indoor humidity during the winter can be very low. Kodak films are often too curly to scan properly. (120 is a lot better than 35mm.) Loading onto development reels is a very trying thing. I thought it was just me, but now I see others are having the same problems.
