    At the risk of going off-topic...this may be a scanner artifact, especially if the edge in question is at at cut edge of a film strip. The OP can PM me and we can discuss it off-line.

    Reels can also slip upwards on the centre column too when doing inversions.

    They can but two 120 reels fit perfectly in the Paterson 3 tank so unless the funnel wasn't on right I think this is unlikely.

    In the Universal tank (holds 2 135 or one 120) it is easy for this to happen however, unless you have a spacer the 120 reel can ride up a fair bit so it is safer to use the Paterson 3 with an empty reel instead if you don't have the spacer.

    A rubber band wrapped tightly around the core above the top reel will prevent any slippage and does not interfere with the chemistry at all. So if you need a dry reel for another go around, there is no need to use empty reels as spacers.

    Thanks All! I can rule out movement of the reels (I've had this problem before :-/ ) and the amount of fluid. It seems the a cause related to the scanner might be most likely, but I must admit that is not a satisfying answer to me because the problem does not always occur. I suppose I can send out the negative in question to Chrome for scanning to see whether the issue replicates (then it's my handling of chemicals) or not (then it's the scanner). What do you guys think?

    Not to digress too much, but is this the kit you used: http://stores.photoformulary.com/-st...er/Detail.bok? Just curious, as I had not seen the new Website (or the $30/L price) yet.

    If it is, does it come with everything needed, and good instructions? It is slightly confusing that they name the product "Flexicolor C-41 Developer," but also call it a kit.

    Nowhere near as "critical" as some would believe. I've mistakenly neglected to stop the developer by as much as a minute and a half, with the greatest effect being a mild shift in overall color - not beyond usual variations.

    The more I think of this, the more suspicious I become of the scanner. Try a different negative orientation and look for a change in the banding location.

    I agree, completely.

    This may be a topic for a thread on DPUG.

    Rubber band to hold the reel on the tank? Thanks, I'll try that.

    Can you put the negative in an enlarger or use a magnifier to check for the line?
