Purple Vertical Line Throughout Footage

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey everyone, 

I've had a handful of rolls developed from my Bolex H16 RX, and all have had a vertical purple line throughout each frame on the left hand side. There's a faint line on the right hand side as well, but less prominent. The line is more apparent in underexposed footage. Image attached of an underexposed clip.

Anyone know what this might be? Some sort of a light leak, or is something scratching the film? Thanks in advance for any help.

Could be that the film stripper scratches, part of the loop former assembly, most probably the upper one. Have a look at that and bend it slightly away from film towards sprocket drum, if necessary.
