    Re: Light spots on film.

    Have you tried more than one box of film?
    Looking at the unexposed edges, there is fogging.
    My first thought is old, fogged or light-struck film.
    How is the film being processed?

    A larger lensboard size would allow use of larger (longer and/or faster) lenses. Vintage 12" (~300mm) f4.5 lenses can get big & heavy...like a Gundlach Radar, or a Wollensak Velostigmat.
