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?
I’ve finally been shooting and developing more of the cinema film my brother has been rolling down to 35mm canisters. I really love the colors of Kodak 500T and even though the development process is challenging thanks to the remjet backing it keeps pulling me back. Hopefully I can improve the consistency so I lose less shots. I think I’ll also be posting more sets in my blog space, though I’ve said that before so we’ll see.
