Share This Page. Thread Tools. Nov 26, 1. Messages: My first foray into MF has not been without issues, not that I am too surprised.
Do You Love Me - Carlton Rara - Home replaced the light seals and thoroughly checked the bellows for leaks which I found a couple of pinholes and repaired these with recommended pliable black fabric paint.
The shutter feels and sounds okay and the lens is pretty clear but not crystal perfect. I did a test roll of TMax using a Leicaflex for metering which is itself not completely accurate due to the hearing aid battery. But the negatives were good bit over exposed and the proof sheet had some good images so I felt it okay to take on a trip to central Australia.
I tried out a mixture of 5 films just for fun comparisons. So my first query here is should film be processed for a bit longer than the recommended box times or should I have adjusted my exposures for the film being used to say ISO when using film?
The proof sheet photos Kino Art - Tank - Upwards At 66°N are of different films. You can see on the portrait pictures that there is a dark band across near the top of one and across near the bottom of another.
Now a Konishiroku Pearl takes a portrait photo in the normal position so it had me mystified for a while as I was thinking it was a camera fault but then I never inverted the camera to take shots so how could it be. Then I thought maybe my loading technique was letting light onto the film somehow.
My final assessment is that maybe the band is caused in the Patterson tank and has to do with the developer not being agitated enough in the early stages.
I usually agitate for the first 45 to 60 seconds and then 5 inversions every 30 seconds for the first 10 min then every 60 seconds till completion. Could it be I needed to do more rigorous agitation in the first 60 seconds? Now that I have looked closely the only film I did not get any banding on was the Rollei RPX and all the others had a mix of banding on top or on the bottom.
Sorry for the long winded explanation but looking forward to your thoughts on this issue before I put any more film into this camera. Nov 26, 2. Messages: 1, The dark band is strange. Here, it is the opposite. Are you sure there is nothing in the camera chamber interfering in the light path? Nov 26, 3.

I don't think that band has anything to do with your processing technique, as it repeats in such an unlikely way to be an agitation or reel loading issue Over exposure could be due to "optimistic" shutter speeds.
Most of the shots appear to be made in Kino Art - Tank - Upwards At 66°N light and the higher shutter speeds might not be quite as fast as listed. Add to this the possibility of stiff shutter lube; it IS an old camera! It might take a bit of experimenting, but I am sure you will be able to figure it out and have a fine Kino Art - Tank - Upwards At 66°N. Nov 26, 4. Messages: 26, Is there a lens Kino Art - Tank - Upwards At 66°N on the camera that is somehow protruding into the image?
Nov 27, 5. Thanks to Matt, Kino and Dali for your input into this issue. I have checked the camera thoroughly and could see no reason that would cause the line. Then turned my attention to the Patterson tank. I was using mm Xtol and mm water so I put in a reel with the centre lump pole and the mm of liquid came to the top of the reel. However when I shook the tank as if inverting it, I noticed that the reel can sit on the higher mound of the centre lump pole and this raised the reel slightly out of Senora De Madrugada - Tito Rojas - A Mi Estilo. liquid.
So I believe the portion of the negative that remains in the reel track was still getting full development with the developer staying in the reel tracks but there is a fall off of development from the edge of the reel downwards hence the strange dark line. From now on I will use a total mix of mm and this should resolve it and maybe not put in the centre lumpy pole either.
Thanks again - hopefully problem solved. Nov 27, 6. My Paterson tanks have a volume recommendation on the bottom.
