    Possible light leak with Rollei 6008

    Hello Apug,

    I've been using a Rollei 6008 Integral for a while and I've been noticing spots on my film, but I don't know what they are. Any opinion would be appreciated, specially from someone with the same gear. I'm attaching and image which shows the problem.Thank you for your time.

    Doesn't look like a light leak to me. Are the spots always in the same place?

    Check the laminar drawslide for damage. Also see this earlier post about trying to load under the clips: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum51/9...-happened.html

    Your sample image doesn't look like either of those things, but it can't hurt to eliminate them as possibilities.

    Yes.

    If it was just bright spots, it could be a light leak. But the dark spots tell the story. Processing.

    Make sure you got enough fluid (developer) covering the film also.

    I have two 6008i cameras. I have not seen this before. How do you process the film?

    Thank you all for your replies. Normally I use HC-110 1+31, then stop bath, fixer, clearing bath, wash and hypo clear. The spots are always on the same place, if they were bubbles wouldn't it be a little bit more random?

    Carefully clean and scrub your developing reels. The bubbles may be forming where there is some residue adhering.
