    Issues with negatives...

    I had posted this on RFF earlier in the week without anyone being able to identify whats happened here with these strange marks. The best suggestion I've had to date was to send the results to Ilford for a response but in the meantime I would still like to see if anyone else can narrow down whats happened here.

    The film shown is HP5, although I had similar issues on some rolls of FP4 developed recently. All the film was purchased new in 2004 and has been frozen since purchase but has been thawed out for a few days and refrozen 3 times due to moves. It is unlikely to be a camera issue as the FP4 and HP5 were shot in different cameras; and certainly not shutter marks on the HP5 as the camera had a leaf shutter. It also isn't due to any kind of double exposure. Any thoughts appreciated...

    It might have been better to keep posting in the other thread If there is no double exposure of someones net curtains (agreed that this is rather unlikely in the circumstances) then I'd say it looks like x-ray damage. One would expect effects from water-damage (freeze/thaw condensation) to be less regular, though I have only seen that from an extreme-rain accident where maybe more water was involved. Have the house moves been inter-country where the container or packages have been subject to a random-search?

    Initially I thought "double exposure", but then I saw that the pattern extended into the margins. It looks almost as though some fabric has imprinted itself onto the emulsion....light leak in a changing bag?

    I've never had any probs on freezing/unfreezing film, and age of film shouldn't be a major issue, from 2004. Was the film kept well sealed in its original factory packing before use (thinking condensation)?

    Hmmm... there's another commonality I hadn't thought of. All this film was spooled [reels loaded] in a Harrison pup tent and the first time it was used.

    Spooled? So it was rolled from bulk ?
    That would have been good information to have

    When I first looked at the 2nd image, it looked to me to be two pieces of wood aligned horizontally with a screw hole in the woman's hip. Does that help with the puzzle?

    Simon Galley from Ilford might spot this thread but he may be tied up at the Focus on Imaging exhibition in Birmingham(U.K.) this week.

    I'd contact Ilford direct. The people there are usually very helpful

    Looks like you need to check the pup tent for light leaks and/or try a roll that you load in a closet or some alternative dark place if you don't have a dedicated dark room.

    I had already messaged Ilford from their web siteband asked for an email address to first send these files but haven't had a reply as of yet...
