    There is no pressure plate. Every frame has the bulge where the film move back from the frame rails. I will shoot another roll this weekend and tighten the film the rewind knob, which I just replaced with the correct one, when I advance the film and just before I take the next picture, as suggested by Ian C in post #4.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Ah ha! Loading the second roll I see that I may have put the film between the foam gate and the second roller rather than under the second roller. The thicken plots!!

    I haven't used one for a long time (and used a variety of others since), but wondered if it might be something like that. They are not all that intuitive to load.

    If you fail to thread the film under the second roller, then there’s nothing to keep the film against the film rails at the right end of the frame. That would leave the image badly defocused at the left side of the photo—which is exactly what happened.

    So far as I can see by looking at the photo of the open back shown (link in post #4) the felt bar (or whatever material it is) shown on the F7 is a light barrier to prevent any stray light from the lens from fogging the exposed film on the take-up spool.

    That is what I figured. Is that foam pad, the only foam pad in the camera? If so I will have to buy some foam and figure out what type of glue to use on it.

    I think that I fixed the problem. Also several years ago, my brother sent several rolls of frozen film to me REI Opticolor 200 135-24 Color Print film, process before 7/94. Do the photos that I took today look ok? I had to rush to get it processed before the film became out of date!

    I've had a similar problem on my first roll with (then new to me) Horizon 202.
    Turns out I did not spool the film under one of the rollers - which just might be your problem, as you said....

    You're very welcome. I'll be adding to it very soon with a detailed typology, walk arounds of the various models as well as a history (all in process)
