I've recently acquired a 4x5 Super D Graflex SLR (Awesome!!!)
I got impatient for my slotted film holders to come in the mail, so I took a pack film holder and rigged it up with some x-ray film, but I experienced some unusual light leaks.
I assumed that I had improperly light proofed the pack film back, so I waited for my first film holder to come in the mail.
Well, it came in today, so I excitedly loaded it up and ran 4 sheets with it. I just developed those sheets, and on two of them, I have the same issue.
Is this even a light leak? I've never seen the like before. Is it possible that it could be caused by bad light traps in the DDS and pack film back? It would explain why 50% of the shots with the DDS are leaked if one side has a faulty trap, however, I would think that a light leak from the DDS would have a more distinctive and feathered appearance...
I'll post the other sheets when they are dry enough to scan
*edit* adding quick cell phone snaps of the affected negs... luckily the two portraits I shot came out ... alright. Both on different loadings of the holder
