Whats wrong with my camera please???
Hi I have just run through my first roll of film in my Mamiya V.
I love this camera, but these photos are disappointing. See they have strange 'bubbles' and weird colours.
What's wrong with the camera? Is it a light leak or is it dust or something worse?
I metered with tried and trusted Lunasix so thats not the problem.

are these marks visible on the film itself? this is not mechanical failure, either in the development or you have a dirty scanner, or your emulsion is a bit sketchy
This probably isn't the only issue, but maybe you have some lens flare?
Thanks Scruff and Nikanon, I was suspecting dodgy development, and lens flare and I think more stuff besides.
I think the 1st two posters have this one covered, so just a welcome from Chesapeake Bay Territory

Seconded and seconded.

bubbles and strange colors would be bad processing or bad film, or both.
In the second image there's a bit of lens flare, perhaps in the first also. That can be fixed partly by using a lens hood, and especially by not shooting into a strong light source.
No particular evidence of a light leak, judging from the second image, it's a little hard to tell in the first.

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Looks like the film is sticking to the backing paper-dampness? Or could be moisture in between lens elements but I'd say probably the backing.
Well thanks guys, so many responses.
All valid responses, too.
Thanks and happy shooting
