to be honest, @himself, i dont think it has to do with the film either. cos the black doesnt vary with each print, or even when i changed the film. i can get the film out alright. ill take it out and snoop around the camera.
also, just noticed there that the blackness is actually getting wider. > i was looking at a few of all these test pictures in order, and i noticed that about half a centimeter just by the blackness is faded on one pic, straight line and all. the next pic that half centimeter is blacked out with the rest of the black. compared the 2 images and the black has grown that half a centimeter. cant get scans of them, but i did take pictures of them on my phone. ill try put them up here somehow.
yes, it is fp100c colour film im using. the rolls in the camera are clean and the bellows have no holes at all.
also, a bit of an odd thing happens too. i am 100% sure that i do everything correctly with regards to actually taking the picture, and removing the picture, and forwarding on the film.
this has only been happening the last few days and never happened before. a perfect example when i put in the new film. the first picture i took came out just white and pinky. knew i obviously did something wrong, so i take another pic of something else, and when i remove that print, the previous picture i had taken comes out. i get one double exposure, that wasnt meant to be a double exposure (it comes out pretty nice tho!). its kind of hard to explain without actually showing it to you all in action, but hopefully, you do get me . if not ill try explain it better.
the film is put in properly, the tab pulled and everything to bring forward the films. it is done right! its very strange, as obviously its not digital and doesnt store the pictures! has anyone any idea about this too?
i know my explanations are very confusing and probably hard to read, but thats the best way i can describe this problem!
