Help Identifying Weird Light Speckles

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Just shot roll of tri-x on a 1953 iif with a red dial 50mm elmar. When I got the scans they all had this super weird light pattern, haven’t seen this before. Images are attached. If anyone can help me identify this so that I can figure out what needs to be fixed, that would be great.

Hello Grennings

Those are light leaks, the shutter curtain has holes and needs to be replaced. It needs to go in for a service and a curtain.

My IIIf was the same see attached
