Consider: if the exposed frame was 30mm X 36mm because of smaller sprocket holes and only on one side of the film, would the image suffer? No. You would STILL have the support needed. And that image would certainly have been better than the standard 24mm x 36mm one we have now. - David Lyga
I don't quite understand how I am polarising. We aren't "required" to waste anything as long as our use of 35mm is voluntary. Assuming the use is voluntary, it's a "that's the way it is" situation. If the waste is really an issue, don't use 35. If you want to use 35, put up with the waste.
