light leak and white line

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I recently shot some rolls on my rex 5 and I noticed that this roll had a a light leak on the right of the frame the entire time, and a small white line going through the entire roll. You can see the tiny white line on the second frame where the arrow is.

I sealed the bolex up well and the other rolls didn't have the red light leak. Any idea where these 2 problems could have come from?

hear are the photos

Well if all the other rolls are OK it's probably not something that happened in camera, maybe the roll got flashed and scratched during processing?

In-camera scratches tend to be very straight, whereas yours looks wavy. I can't remember what causes a white scratch in a scan - a scratch in the negative base? Maybe a lab person can chime in.

thanks for the reply. 

well the 2 rolls have the same white line on both rolls but the light leak is only on one roll.
