    Polaroid 150 light leak

    Is there any way of telling from photo where to look for light leak? I have converted it to a pack film using a back off a Polaroid Super Shooter. I have tryed closing camera back with small flashlight and can not see any leaks. The leak is always in the same place on each photo. Ideas anyone?

    Sorry for small image, I am computer challenged.

    Are you pushing the pack into the camera at that same point every time? Kinda looks more like a pressure mark than a light leak (though it's hard to tell it's so tiny). Otherwise it might be a pin hole in the bellows?

    Since images are upside down and flipped left to right, I'd use that information to find the pin hole... maybe top left area?

    Also since it's a conversion... have you checked to see if the lens/bellows when closed up press against the film pack? That might cause a pressure mark.

    Hi Heather, thanks for the help. I have fooled around with polaroids for a long time but had never considered the right left point. And there is a slight wrinkle located top left.
    Just checked your site, WOW, love the images.

    Heather you were right on the money about location of light leak, I covered the bellows and ta-ta no light leak. Thank you
