    Could have been but no. It's a Mamiya 645 AFD II (no leaf shutter) correctly put in X-mode. And I had the same problem more or less on the outdoor shots on the rolls I developed myself. But thanks for all the tips. I put it in my mental toolbox for future use!

    Really? The Mamiya 645 isn't a leaf shutter? Well that's news to me, hmm interesting. Good luck

    Just another thing to consider.

    If the synch doesn't match, and the leaf shutter is only part way open when the flash goes off, the film is evenly exposed, but the shutter will perform like a second aperture and potentially reduce the brightness of the light that hits the film.

    Sort of the same effect as changing from f/5.6 to f/11.

    And the Mamiya 645 line cameras have focal plane shutters. There are a couple of specialized leaf shutter lenses you can use with them, but most of the systems lenses don't have a shutter.
