Has anyone experienced any stock defects that look like blue dots in this film stock?

Thanks

If the blue dots are in regular intervals ( and possibly taking up the whole frame), in that case it was x-rayed at some time before or after exposure. This may be more prominent on faster stocks than slow ones for obvious reasons. It may be something else, but from information I got here it seems logical. Cheers!

I don't think that is what he is talking about, Marek, as x-ray is normally a "streak" or a "line."

Dots are tiny blemishes, not something that would generally used to describe something fillling up a significant part of the frame.


Bill: What were you shooting? Can you be more specific/post a sample?

I had two rolls of neg x-rayed this summer.
The artifact produced looked like big blue circle covering almost the whole frame and flashing every 3-4 frames across the whole length neg.
Luckily it was two rolls of tests. Safe.

But not sure why, on the neg it actually looked like this: Posted Image

Thats definately X Ray.

Blue spots sounds like static, which Fuji used to be notorious for, though not heard of it being a problem for years.

Difficult to give an opinion without seeing a sample but I have known aluminum dust to cause blue spots.
