Another light leak

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I've had a camera with this sort of light leak in the past, and never got to the bottom of it. I've started to notice in the occasional frame from my last few rolls a little light left of photo suggesting it's coming in from the right hand side. The door seal looks good I can't see any grit. Could the light be finding its way in via the viewfinder or rewind release lever?

I've found the previous thread I started regarding a similar leak in an M2 I once owned but later sold to a forum member. Malcolm Taylor failed to get to the bottom of the issue on his first attempt, and for some reason I didn't return it to him for another look but sold it on with full disclosure. I spoke to Malcolm recently and he asked me about that M2. What a remarkable memory he has.

      M3 Horizontal light leak / streak? Help! :-)
       
      Greeting all! Attached are images from a '59 M3 seviced by DAG at some undetermined time before I bought it. This issue only occurred on this roll after 20+ previous perfect rolls.
       
      This horizontal streak showed up an most of the 38 exposures. It seems worse on longer exposures but is still visible on a few of the faster shutter speeds. It does NOT show at the 1/1000 range. The first two pics are from the first part of the roll, the third pic is from the end of the roll. Film: Ilford 400, lens Sumilux 50mm (with hood). Any help would be appreciated. If this symptom has been discussed and solved, let me know where and I will gladly delete this post :-) The scans just hit my email, and I have asked the lab to check the negatives' rebate to see if it was processing, since I do not have the negatives in hand yet. 
       
      Many thanks, Dan.
