I had just shot my first roll through my new Canon Canonet 28 yesterday and when I developed the film the results appeared to have very specific looking light leaks?! I have never experienced light leaks with a camera so I'm not quite sure what to look for so I'll post a scan of one of the shots to see what you all think...the whole roll has the same leak with varying degrees of overexposure but all cut the frame in half like the example below?
I am trying to figure out how to fix this issue...so i tried to seal the camera with gaffers tape as well as electrical tape...and I shot another roll today with the door sealed with tape with slightly better results... but still the same looking light leak on almost all the frames here are two more examples of the new roll below...the two shot were taken within seconds of each other but one came out fine and the other looks like crud? I am really confused by this issue what changed in those few seconds to make that happen?
1) Bad ass light leak.... or
2) shutter issue....I noticed when I open the back of the camera and set the aperture to its fastest 2.8 and depress the shutter its a perfect circle as it should be so I proceed to do the same little test though the rest of the apertures and noticed that the shutter morphs its shape into a diamond like shape...Is this normal for this type of shutter or could this be an issue which is messing with my exposures... (i know this sounds kinda crazy right)
Any help would rock my socks cause I love this little guy and don't want to retire it to the display self just yet!
