    They'd be dry before you could hang them up.

    You need the holder ( roughly 100/120$), liquid (I use Kami) and Mylar sheets.
    You can save mucho dinero on the Kami buy using Gamsol.

    Its driving me nuts!
    I get rid of dust with this : Honeywell HAP-16200E

    Do the job in a room that is not dusty, as small as possible, start the air purifier some 10min before scanning. Wear clothes that are not prone to generate dust.

    I'll start googling around for that. How about Mylar sheets? Any affordable alternatives

    I actually need one for my son's allergies. I used to have the big floor round model. Will look into it!

    Bingo! Thanks for the reminder. My mate is asthmatic. Gosh only knows what triggers it. We have two Honeywell HEPA 17000-S units, and they filter very, very well. One found itself in my darkroom after we installed electrostatic and passive filters in our central air and heating. Highly recommended.

    This. Cut it to the size you need. I use a paper cutter and can get 20 pieces for scanning 45 per sheet, so you should be able to get 10 per sheet for 810.

    Does that stuff (gamsol) easy to clean off? Does it evaporate off the negative like the Kami stuff?

    Does the wet scan really make a difference?

    I have an epson v850 to scan 4x5 sheets and the amount of dust I am getting with the default holder is driving me nuts.

    If you are seeing dust when using the film holder then something is very wrong. Clean the negs, clean the glass, select scanning with the film holder option and make sure the scanner is focused on the film plane in the holder and not on the glass.
