    And I thought you recorded a Higg's Boson. Oh well, must stop giving advice on subjects I know less.

    More seriously, an interesting negative. I'd like to see how you interpret it when printing.

    amazing, I've never had this happen, even on the coldest dry days. I was photographing on a mountainside in northern Finland once, with my F3/MD4 on full blast, and thought for sure I would get static on some of the rolls, but I was spared.

    I had thought that to avoid static you would want to use an advance in short slow bursts (ala the Cs mode on the Nikon F4), so as not to build up friction with the pressure plate.

    Sirius, I know. I was on a mountainside in Northern Finland in the middle of January, dry, dry, frigid cold. I had my F3 with an MD4, shooting full blast continuous sometimes even, and I was amazed that I didn't get any static. I would've thought the MD4 would have made it happen in conjunction with the weather conditions.

    Thank you for your replies. The picture was outside taken on a cold winter day. Camera is a Nikon FE, film is Arista Edu 400. The spark could perhaps also have happened inside the changing bag while I was loading the film onto the reels, as indoor humidity was very low. Either way, it's a surprising and remarkably well-placed effect

    Dr Croubie: It's a negative scan. The spark is clearly visible on the negative, so the scanner isn't to blame.

    How toavoid this? Advance the film slowly on cold dry days. Not sure if it will work all the time, but it will help.

    There were two or three shots with this light shafting from the top.
    (BTW... definitely NOT static, but fun nonetheless, and fits in well with the doggie picture.)

    Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Rewinding very quickly can sometimes cause a discharge, the best (worst?) one I've had was near the leader on a roll I was changing out quickly. It was pretty cool looking.
