Now it doesn't - Balda Baldina, Zug, Switzerland. An intermittent fault yet to be discovered.

Strange behavior! Internal reflexions?

Was a possibility I had previously considered, and I made sure to paint over any small missing areas of paint internally (but hardly any present as camera is in good condition). But if that was the case, why only on some frames and not all? Same applies to a light leak....

Have you tried to shoot with color film? The color of the light leak might help: white from the front, orange from the back.
I hope you solve this mystery as soon as possible.

Good idea. I might try that, but if I recall from past rolls including colour it is not an orange haze. But I shall recheck. Thanks.

Seems coming from the bottom (of the camera) , do you get these leaks when using an ERC ? (I have some oldies that behave like light sieves if using them without a case )

I apply an electrician's tape to one place at a time in order to localize such kind of the leaks. A bit troublesome as you have to note the location of the tape for each frame but worked for me couple of times!

Robbe - thanks your input. I do use the ready case, but it does not cover any of the extending 'tubus' (metal tube instead of bellows) which is where I would expect the light leak to come from.

Ilya - I shall keep that in mind. Thanks for the guide.
