    Tapping helps eliminate film movement.

    To stop the buckling, with the shutter closed and the dark cloth over the back of the camera and film holder, remove the dark slide and wait 1-2 minutes for the buckling to take place. The make your exposure and there wil be no further buckling.

    When out using my 4x5, I once had some film buckling and couldn't reinsert my darkslide. I tilted the camera upwards and with the help of gravity, was able to salvage that piece of film.

    I've never had film buckling, but because I cut my 8x10's from a roll, my trouble (not too often thank goodness!) has been negatives falling out of the holder from being cut too small . I also started tapping them down into place before I expose (the film) and as long as they're cut right, I have no trouble with expansion from heat.

    cheers
