View Full Version : Holes in my Film!

I just had my first Fuji Acros B&W quickloads developed at the lab, and there is a perfectly clean 2mm hole right through all the film sheets in the image area near the corner with the notches. The lab says they never saw this before, but couldn't recall processing this type of quickload before. The typical film hanger blemish is there, indicating how they gripped it for tank dipping. The hole has ruined the edge of the image, forcing me to crop an edge that was perfectly acceptable. What is this all about?

Thanks. It is unbelievable that a company like Fuji would put holes in their film sheets for no apparent reason, and that the folks that use it (and responded to the linked thread) would just put up with it. I'm switching brands.
