I am almost positive I read somewhere that it is actually recommended that one should not store film back magazines with the dark slide inserted, (obviously unloaded, empty ones) to avoid prolonged compression of the foam pad. This is to lessen the chance that the seal will compress and stop performing its function (keeping a good light tight seal).
I know I saw this somewhere... I can not find this in Wildi or in Freytag...
Fact or fiction?
Thanks in advance
