    Yep, edge fog from loose winding and/or leaky paper edges. Take the advice on subdued light loading. I've been using the black rollfilm film canisters from JandC (25 cents each), and like them a lot. Gave about 25 of them to a friend who shoots a lot of rollfilm while he travels and does nature photography, and he loves them too. Keeps the film a lot safer than plastic bags, and keeps pressure marks off the film too.

    Load and unload in subdued light, and don't leave the roll sitting out in the light before or after loading.
    I agree here! I had the same problem with some Efke 100 recently. My instructor at school seemed sure that was the problem.

    Ditto with the canisters. I got about 20 and love them- makes tons of sense to me.
    BTW J&C has some films that come in those canisters- Adox/Efke (see site for details)

    Another vote for the Goldfarb answer. I learned (the hard way) that it's best to load and unload 120/220 film in as much shade as possible. It's also handy to keep some small squares of aluminum foil around to wrap each roll of film when you're done to keep it "safe". Never had a problem since.

    J&C has those 120 plastic tubes to keep your film in. They are cheap at 25 cents a piece.

    I had this same problem a few years ago. only the fog went into the image. Bergger paper is thin when I put a loupe up to the fog I saw a number from the paper backing. I sent it to the Bergger rep and was told they knew of the problem. That was the last I heard of it. I have since not left the film anywhere there is strong light, when outside of its wrapper. I have not had a problem since. It would be nice if they put a warning out. I had numerous films with black edges. Thought it was my camera, but on the other hand got my equipment cleaned.

    I like Bergger film but am not to happy with there customer service. Will probaly not use there 120 film again, when current stock run out. But will still buy 8x10 and 5x7 from them.
