I just got my test footage back and it looks great. However, there are two small redish light leaks in the roll towards the middle. Do you have any idea why this might be?

Obviously the K3 is not exactly rocket science. Its either leaking around the cover seal, the roll remaining counter, or the gate somehow. I always gaff tape my k3 anywhere there could be a light leak just to make sure. People wonder if thats how the camera is being held together :)
