    Yesterday I picked up a nice looking, used Aria to replace my ST. Today I noticed there are no foam seals in the groves of the back. Can Aria owners tell me whether this is tipical. On another issue, can anyone speak of experience shooting Kodak Infrared film with an Aria.

    Thanks Jaap Jan

    No experience with Infrared film in my Aria and it's loaded with about 1/2 roll of film so I can't open it to tell you about seals; BUT in a day or two I will.

    Mine is loaded as well, so I can't tell. The Aria manual states clearly that you can't shoot infrared film with it.
