    No I don't have long hair (sometimes I wish I did). The lines looked like they were in the same place on the frame but they were much more pronounced on this shot. I'm not sure if something happened during development, I'll have to go back to the lab and talk to them to see what happened but I'm away right now so It'll have to be next week.

    I just find it so odd that it only showed up with the 28mm yet I cannot seem to see anything wrong with the lens.

    I've not tested any of this equipment yet, this was the first roll I ran through the T90 after receiving it, and I just got my light seal kits for my A-1 bodies the other day and haven't had a chance to shoot with them yet.

    Ok new discovery.

    I think it is in fact somehow related to the T90. I shot another test roll and used all of my lenses for several frames (I also shot a roll through my A-1 at the same time) The A-1 roll came back perfect (save for any errors I made in metering) which had several frames with the 28mm.

    The t90 roll looks good to the eye, but after scanning some of the frames I found the lines again in one of the images. This time it was with the 200mm f/2.8.

    So now that I've ruled out the variables. I need to figure out what in the T90 is causing this, and why is it not on every frame.

    I sent an email to Steve Sweringen at Camera Clinic (The T90 specialist) and even he hasn't seen anything like this before!

    Did you try my empty camera bulb exposure experiment to examine the shutter?

    Yeah I checked with a flashlight and carefully watched the shutter during opening and closing. Nothing really stood out to me except that one of the blades in the middle looks like it has some wear on it. I'm just baffled.

    In a darkened room, open the back of the camera, and put a strip of translucent paper over where the film usually goes. Set the camera to "Bulb" and trip the shutter. Point the camera toward a window. You should see an upside down image of the window on the translucent paper. Do you see those lines on the inverted image?

    If it is a problem with the shutter, you won't see it on "bulb" because the shutter is wide open. You'd only see the flaw/problem/hole when the shutter moves, which is too fast to monitor.

    Hate to say it, but unless you're the kind that repairs your own gear, it's time to take it in for a checkup.

    I'm starting to think that is going to be the only option. I'm going to talk with Steve at the camera clinic and get a quote for a repair.

    I'm also going to contact the seller and see if I can get a partial or full refund since it was described as fully working.

    My sympathies. I had a similar issue with a used camera I just got. I knew there was a chance it was damaged, though... but still! Dashed hopes are a sour taste, eh?

    Hope it's not too expensive for ya.

    Yeah me too.. I really like the T90. It's my first time working with one. I also picked up a couple A-1s recently and honestly I just absolutely preferred handling the T90. It was just so much more familiar and comfortable to me. Kind of reminds me of a Contax RTS III.

    I wasn't planning on re-selling the camera I want this one to keep (even with its dings) so I'll probably just pay for the repair. I think it's around $120-130? I hope??
