    I'm trying to use FP100C in an RB67. I know the black bar on the right is due to the design of the RB67, but why am I getting the horizontal burn mark?

    I'm confused how you even got it to one side... Mine are always centered and all 4 sides have a slight black (or whatever color the dark is) bar.. but I have an RZ.

    But what I see is light leak... There's a big hole somewhere...

    The horizontal burn is the same dimensions as the paper pull tab. Isn't it more likely that I loaded it wrong? Still, I cannot see another way to load it.

    Can it be that your rollers in your polaroid back are dirty and not distributing the developer chemicals evenly? It looks like it's not squishing through properly.

    I cleaned them. Is the white paper pull tab supposed to be threaded thru the rollers?

    No, the pull tab comes out above the rollers.

    Can you please clarify "above"?

    Here is a pic. You can see the tab slot (on the left where my finger is holding back the tab) next to the roller slot on the right

    I think I fixed it. Does this look better? It seems so wrong...

    Yes, for your back that looks right. The tab and photo do not come out of the same slot.

    My first try with fb100c (in a Vivitar slide copier) I had trouble figuring out where the tabs went, and mistakenly had them in between the rollers. In my case, though, the pull-tabs broke off, and I wasted a few sheets having to reload the film and try again.

    When you insert the pack, don't worry about where the tabs are, only that you have enough tab to pull. The details take care of themselves. Slap in the pack, close the back, pull black tab, and go.

    Obviously I was thinking too hard about this and have paid for it with two sheets. Actually one, because the model blinked in the first one anyway.

    That is correct.
