    Yashica T3 light leak

    Sometimes there is, sometimes there isn't. When there is, it is always in the same place of the frame (and same shape). I inspected carefully the inside - no damages or deterioration of light seals, all very clean... So - what could be the reason?
    Below are two photos taken in the sequence - one shows the leak, another is without.

    Is there something in the mirror box causing a reflection? Remove the lens, set the shutter to "T" or "B" so the mirror is up, see if some black paint is missing somewhere.

    Right, based on the location of the leak it must be it... Thanks!
