    Re: Light leak diagnosis help please.

    I saw something similar some years back, a student was occasinaly using a cable release in a way that allowed it to cross in front of the lens. It had a white covering.

    Oops. Definitely not the case here. I am sure of that. Thank you.

    Are you pulling on the back when you pull up on the darkslide? With my thumb and fingers, I "pinch" the whole back assembly so when I'm pulling the darkslide, that whole thing stays put back there. Sometimes I see people pulling the darkslide and accidentally pulling the back open slightly

    This is worth investigating. A few of my dark slides have become a little bit gritty(tougher to remove). If the light is coming in from the top of the back then the pattern would seem to make sense. I do think it is probably from the front still, but I will be more cautious.

    Thank you very much,
