(I was using different filters etc.) The scene was in Scotland and very similar to yours Tom - big sky landscape etc. It's definitely higher density on the neg and looks to me like a slight light leak or perhaps sun catching a filter ring or something and flaring back into the lens. Of course, the best of the four negs was affected - well we knew that, of course!

The good news is that his neg was taken early in the trip and was on the first or second film and those two negs were the only one's to exhibit the problem. I'm going to ignore it until or unless the problem arises again.

I've just printed some negatives from a roll only exposed with the 45mm lens and still found these marks on the prints; so perhaps it is a light leak. Next thing is to expose some film on blue sky with the Bronica SQ-B as a control. The RF645 exposed film is completely clean otherwise, no loose film type black markings on the edge of the film etc.
