Ecn-2 Magenta Banding

Ecn-2 Magenta Banding

I’m not sure if other people have seen things like this on Ecn-2 based films, but I can’t figure out exactly what it is. On some shots, especially those with a lower exposure, I seem to get these areas of magenta bands or contamination near the top and bottom of a frame. I don’t think it’s a light leak from the camera, as I’ve seen the same thing from 3 of my 35mm cameras. Could it be from static unrolling the bulk reel to spool down for the bulk loader or perhaps a very minor leak from the bulk loader?

  1. Looks like some sort of light leak

    1. That’s what I was thinking too, but it seems to happen independent of which camera I’ve used. My brother seems to think this bulk loader is fine, so I’m guessing we may have a static problem when spooling down the 400′ reel to 100′ sections.
