    Pen EE-3 light leak

    I just ran my first roll of film through a recently acquired Pen EE-3 and in several spots there are patterns of repeating light leaks. I'll show one section of the film strip. What you don't see here is that the effects of the light leak go all the way out to the edge of the film, where the holes are. Any idea what kind of leak this is and how to fix it?

    Camera needs new foam around the back. Also in some rare cases (if lens assembly is very loose), light can leak in through missing screws. John

    Thanks John. I was hoping it would be something simple like that. I'll see what I can do to tighten things up.

    Slot foam top and bottom is where I'd look first. John
