    hi everyone,

    If I am looking at my groundglass, I am seeing a black stroke of shade on both the right and left side of the image.
    Why is that?
    If I am using shifts to left or right, the shade will disapear on one side...
    I can not imagine it's the imagecircle, since no movements have been made.

    Hopefully someone can help me out here, THANKS!

    kind regards game (lens used is 150mm f5.6 rodenstock apo-sironar)

    It sounds like the bellows is impinging on the image. Try gathering the bellows toward the front standard.
