    I've been scanning in a few hundred Kodachrome slides and came across this artefact on two consecutive frames:

    Any ideas on cause, the banding is visible on the film itself, which was processed October 2010.

    Looks like the reflection of a car or bus dashboard.

    Good point, from the previous frame it looks as though I was probably photographing behind a window from within a train:

    I like those two images if I crop off the reflection.

    Always use that rubber thing. I mean that rubber light shade, and press it onto the window plane.

    Yep, second one is almost definitely a fluoro light or luggage rack.
