Bessa RxA/M : gap between photos - how big ?

Hi,

I have read that with the Bessa Rx series, the gap between two images is rather small. This provides for one or two additional shots but has a drawback when scanning. I need to scan the negatives with a Reflecta Proscan 7200 and the gap between two images must be at least 1.5 mm.

Any information about this?

Thanks in advance.

In my r4a, they don't really look that small, and I scan them fine. I had, problems of frame superposition. I think it was my fault, tough. I used to maintain tension on the film, by rewinding when it is locked. Above certain tension, the camera rewinds one sprocket. Maybe protection mechanism. I've made some tests with a test roll and could not detect any problems. Maybe it's something to do with it. I'm waiting to process my late rolls to confirm there is no problem.

There is a nice gap, I'm almost certain it's 2mm with my R3a.

Larger than the Barnacks I've used. It's difficult to cut between images with some of those cameras. Still no problem scanning though.

I would have thought that the spacing would have been set by the perforations. Eight perforations per (frame+space) which seems to equal about (or exactly?) 38mm. Assuming a 36mm frame, that leaves 2mm. Aren't all 35mm cameras the same?
