Need Help With Possible Camera Issue

Greetings All,

Could someone give me an idea as to what may be wrong with my camera? These images are from using several different lenses as well as rolls of film. It seems that light is intruding on both the left and right sides. It does show up on the negatives very clearly.

 

It also only seems to show up during daylight.

 

Any and all help is appreciated.

 

 

Thanks!

I once had a similar problem in my M2. The shape was different, and it was (apparently) intermittant. Like your problem, the leak occurred always in the same place, and overlapped two frames.

 

It turned out to be a light leak around the small rewind lever on the front of the camera. Gerry Smith at Kindermann in Toronto found and fixed the problem (BTW - he is terrific).

Thanks for that feedback. I would have never of thought a leak there was possible.
