I've posted this prob before, but I've come across a theory related to filmstock.

We've been testing our Bolex EBM (modified for S16) by shooting black and white reversal (7266) and negative (7222). Our footage keeps coming back with a halation-like ghost image around highlights.

See the pic in my other post: filmstock post

The weird thing is that it's a horizontal aberration. As far as I can tell, the ghosting does not occur vertically--difficult to tell, though.

I've come across some posts about black and white film not having rem-jet backing, and that cameras need to be optimized to run black and white due to differences in film thickness and anti-static coating (gate tension has to be adjusted).

Does this look like a halation problem to anyone? Particularly one that might be caused by that difference in black and white film? Do you think it would be worth testing a roll of color?

Thanks!
