    Counter number imprinted on film

    Have a problem with the counter numbers appearing on an image, is it possible that an old roll of film will transfer the dye to the film base or do I have a light leak in my camera?. Old film with Provia100-1999. Colours are fine in actual image, but have saturated the attached image to show the problem

    Cheers

    Looks like exposure through the backing paper.

    Seem like I might have to buy a stronger torch to look for the leak. But it would have to be fairly significant to imprint the way it has. Do you know if older backing paper was thinner than the newer stuff because it does appear on a Tmax test roll I did.

    How do you wind your film? With a red window or similar to look at frame numbers? I agree that it's light coming through something like that and exposing the film through the backing paper. There are also big horizontal streaks that I suspect come from a similar source.

    There is a sliding cover which reviles a hole to show the frame number, but it is in the top 1/3 of the frame ( iwind left to right using the 6x9 frame numbers), these number imprinted are in the sky so in reality are the bottom 1/3 when the image is reversed in camera so I don't think its the counter hole because light through the counter hole would show up in the lower section.

    Loose roll? Changing rolls in full sunlight?

    Yes, perhaps the most likely cause.
