    Strange marks on film.

    Hi all,

    I hope you'll be able to help please?

    I bought a new lens for my Leica M2 and shot a test roll to check focus.

    After processing and scanning the FP4 in Adox Adanol, I found these strange regular lines in nearly all of the frames, such as can be seen in the dark areas of the attached picture.

    I haven't noticed these ever before and my processing technique was the same (1:25, 9 min's, agitate every minute for 10 seconds) except for the developer temp being 23.5c (hot day) and that the fixer solution I used was about 2 years old and basically exhausted (I had no new concentrate available and they were only test shots).

    Any ideas gratefully received.

    Cheers, Kev

    I see perpendicular arrays of lines (fine, accentuated and wide, hazy lines).

    eyeballs

    I have strained my eyeballs and cannot see any "strange regular lines" in the photo. I see some squiggles that look like tree branches. The M2 is a fabulous camera and you're lucky to have one. Good luck.

    Not that I have a clue why they are there, I do see what the OP is referring to. I did zoom my browser quite a bit to see it though.

    Hi Snapguy,

    If you look at the darkness in the upturned rowing boat (yep it is) over the bench, there are thick horizontal lines with what I could best describe as a tartan pattern.

    Thanks, the M2 is a great instrument and something I treasure.

    Cheers,

    That's the ones. I hope it is the temp or the fixer cos it's got me stumped.

    Humm, now there's an idea. I did give it a quick wipe with an old t-towel beforehand and it might not have been the freshest.

    Think I'll give it a going over with some lens cleaner and try it again.

    Hope you're right and thanks,

    Looks like a scanning issue to me, check the negative with the loupe maybe?

    The one thing I didn't think to check was the neg'.

    It's been a long day.
