Working camera with an issue on the photograph

Postby NadavRotem » Wed 02 October 2013 / 11:31 am

Hello
I Bought a Polaroid film camera model 440, and while testing 2 different films I noticed a coloration on the upper part of the photographs I took.
as the problems happens on two different films I am sure it`s a problem with the camera.
Is anyone familiar with this issue ? is it fixable ?
Any help will be greatly appreciated !

Hi Nadav!
I can see you wrote the temperature in the frame of your picture. It's hot but it should be a problem if you respected the processing time recommendation. Perhaps did yoy wait to peel your Fuji FP100C for a too long time? This si the way I thing about your issue. Have a nice day!

Thank you !

Sorry, I dont know which other advice I could give you. Did you check the cleanness of the rolls in the extraction mouth of your camera. And you obviously know that you have to manipulate the film packs by the sides and not to press on them on the center or the upper side (there is theorically a warning label for that)

Another reason could be the way you extract the film from the camera.
Be sure to do it in one movement, without any break.
Do not do it too fast or too slowly.
