It actually looks like he scanned the film while it is still in a Mylar sleeve or something odd like that. I doubt my monitor is applying sharpening on its own since every other image doesn't suffer. I am saying that it doesn't look like a light leak to have a thin white line bordering a dark frame, that looks like a sharpening halo from when you over do it. Can you see the density on the film itself? I bet the scanner is doing this, probably the default setting is set to sharpen and the sleeve may make the effect worse.
Frankt, that's not what we're talking about, I'm talking about the dark line on the right side, about 6-7mm into the negative (vertical format)... And I found out the reason for it:
it's a manufacturing error, lots of Fomapan sheet film seem to be affected, a facebook-contact of mine posted this image as a comparison:
same line, same problem - same solution, I'm afraid: don't buy Fomapan
He says, "Well, they are definitely on the negatives", but I've seen stuff like that when flopping film down on the scanner and scanning it when the edges of the film lift off the glass a little. When the film's not flat, sometimes you get some reflection going on between the glass and negative, which can be dark when inverted. A glass plate over the negative, if it's not big enough could do that too if you are getting reflections coming off the finished edges and bouncing down onto the negative.
Thanks for the followup Shutter. I wouldn't put it past them to have a MFG error. I like their LF film and have a bunch in the freezer, but I like Kodak better and have more of that in the freezer, because they don't have such errors. (Ilford is quality too, but I don't want to juggle too many different films at once)
Ugh that doesn't bode well for once Kodak is gone. I've had several defects in Ilford before.
Well.. we still have wetplate photography and photographic emulsions to create our own sheet film hehe
Christoph, beautiful, especially the first one. Too bad about the mark, but lovely image.
I've never seen a defect in any film made by the big 3 (Kodak, Ilford, Fuji). I'm not claiming there's never been a defect, but I've never seen one. Every other manufacturer is a crap shoot, as far as I'm concerned, and with some, it seems my odds are less than even.
