    RB67 Pro-S light leaks

    Where are they most prone to leak? I have a good size one on many images on the right side that runs the height of the frame, I think it's the door latch seal. I remember the M645's were notorious for leaks at the latch.

    Dark slide seal is the most regular for me.

    Check your rotating back. There were some screws loose on mine. Tightened them up, leak gone.

    The most popular light leaks i repair are the film back n rev back seals. Its very rare the dark slide baffle causes leaks because its a spring steel flap with some felt but will seal even if the felt is completely worn.

    The other light leaks to look for are at the corner folds of the bellows.

    Buy the foam seal kits fron jon goodman on ebay n diy. Its a very simple n inexpensive fix.
