    My Brick leaks. (three images)

    Edit: Hosting went down for a bit, so added them as an attachment.

    But can you tell me from WHERE? I'm puzzled. It may be something else, too, but I have no clue what.

    And for the uninitiated, the "Brick" I'm referring to is an Argus C3.

    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I don't think it's a leak. It looks like the film got bent and created a "crescent moon".

    It's the same place on every single frame, though...bending the film the same place on every frame is kind of unlikely, isn't it?

    Edit: It seems like the most likely explanation, though. I'm going to have to test another roll of film to see. I'll have to do it tomorrow, though, since we ran out of daylight about four hours ago.

    Stephanie,

    It get progressively worse with each shot.

    Does your "brick" have a dual shutter and is one tearing?

    Maybe you should go back to RFF? I'm sure they miss you there and probably have a greater expertise in this gear.

    No, staying here. I end up missing this place more.

    And it *is* a light leak. I think I found the problem. Going to take it with me on a walk this morning and test out my theory. The thing is...it's going to suck to have to retape the thing every time I go out with it...

    Never seen a brick leak before. Where do you think it is coming in?

    Most likely where the door shuts in the back somewhere. I noticed that what light sealing it has is starting to go...so until I get that replaced it'll be a tape-up-all-exposed-corners kind of thing.

    Hey, don't feel bad! Watch cinematographers take those beautiful, brand new Arriflex and Panavision motion picture cameras and slather their magazines on all seams with camera tape. They know what is important, the film and the images inside. Tape it up and be happy...

    Hi Stephanie.
    You can peel the felt from film cassette ends and use that to cure your light leak until you invest in one of John Goodman's light seal kits.
