    Make sure that take-up spool is threaded correctly ...

    In 50 years of using various roll-film cameras (counting the 127 Brownies), I've never before had this happen.

    specifics ('cause I know you'll ask):

    Fuji GS645
    Fuji Acros film
    Ilford take-up spool
    Attention to detail: low

    I've heard of a 'fat roll', but that's ridiculous! Not like I've never done anything like that (smacks self in forehead).

    Have had it happen. You'll see some edge flashing and that's about it.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Had it happen a couple of times on an old Fuji 645 folder, and once on an ensign 820, with the 820 the trick was to make sure the film was wound tight at the start, with the fuji it was random what ever I did

    I bet the amount of play or backlash in the feeding axis on the Fuji was such that it allowed the feeding spool to slide up or down which influenced the take up spool. Just throwing stuff out there though.

    I did not develop it. Fortunately, I was just playing with the camera and nothing on was important.
