    Tanks a lot for all your useful answers. I will continue to investigate the matter. I will get back to you probably next Thursday when I am finished scanning new rolls.

    I know I'm stating the obvious, but because you mentioned you have 3 different bodies: you did shoot both the Ektar and Portra roll for your test in the same body, right?

    Edit: because it really looks like a light leak, we're just not sure if it's happening in your camera or somewhere else. It may also have already occured on the film, and I'd also get a fresh roll from another supplier, and check that against your findings of this latest test (if they come back positive).

    That is right.

    Post #1: I did shoot both the ektar (the pictures in this post come from two different ektar rolls) and the portra (not shown) with my Elan 7n.

    Post #5: I did shoot both the ektar and, in this case, the Kodak gold 100 with my 1v.

    Post #9: I did shoot both the ektar and the portra with my 1v. I will see how things went next Thursday.

    Thanks for the advice, I will get some rolls from another store.

    Well, thank you. Maybe I can make it look like an artistic creation.

    My guess: uneven development. This may happen during development (too few or wrong agitation) or during the switch from dev to bleach/stop (certain regions of the film are developed slightly longer). Some film types are more sensitive to deviations of processing time than others, so while one film is developed evenly, the other film might show streaks or other irregularities under the same conditions.
    This also happens in B&W, but usually to a lesser extent because development times are longer. Additionally, grey density streaks are much less visible than color streaks in C41 color film.

    Maybe excess heat to the Ektar, which may have been shipped or stored differently. I had odd color shifts to some film years ago when I was carrying an Oly OM-1 in a bicycle handlebar bag and it got too hot.

    OK, that makes things a little different, then, because I didn't realize you had already done this test in multiple bodies.
    The odds that ALL 3 of your cameras have a light leak is too high. It must be something else. Either uneven development, as we stated, or the film has been exposed to something before you got it, etc....either it has already happened to the film, or it is happening AFTER you take the rolls out of the cameras. Too crazy for all 3 bodies to develop a light leak at once.

    Outside of the technical aspects,
    this reddish smooth light really suits nice.

    Are you sure that this isn't actually a cyan problem, rather than a red problem?

    A red light leak on the edges would make more sense then a cyan light leak in the middle.
