Has anyone experienced this problem? The image I have here is what the first few seconds appears on rolls of developed Kodak 200T and 500T. It has happened with every camera I have used but not on every roll I have shot, but most. The image is inverted, so its really a blue stripe on a white background. All the processing has been done through Spectra. I haven't sent it to a different lab so I can't really blame Spectra.

I do know that I have not always labeled my packages "do not X-ray", so am wondering if this is the cause, since I've never seen a film with X-ray damage. The stripe is carried through the entire roll and when telecined the right side of the image appears lighter than the rest and discolored.

Thanks in advance.

That looks like a light leak to me. What kind of camera are you using? S8?

Cheers, Dave

Hello!
I had the same problem with b/w films shot in various cameras but mainly eumig nautica. I started a thread about that problem and most people suggested it is a light leak or a chemistry issue. Light leak throughout almost a whole roll seemed to me not so likely to have happened so i figured i did something wrong when i home processed the films. The effect looks exactly the same a stripe in perfs and also this stripe is a bit green comparing to the rest of the film area.

Thanks A;exandros. I've wondered about the processing as well, but I haven't sent them to any other place other than Spectra. I'll need to look into that in order to confirm. Any recommendations for a US-based lab that handles S8 negative stocks?

It's in Canada, but Niagara Custom Lab in Toronto processes Super 8 negative.
