I recently got my fed 2 off the bay, and I like it a lot, much better build quality than my monday-morning (or friday-afternoon) version of fed 5. But...
There is light leak. It is probably the same as described in this thread
. I cleaned the insides (it vas _very_ dusty) and painted the entire curtain with black fabric paint (the curtain had some very small white debris on it, impossible to get off, might cause flare).
After this, I checked for light leak by placing it under a lamp for a minute or two, and then pressing the shutter button with the cap on. This revealed fogging like in the thread above. Pressing the shutter with the cap on, and then placing it under a lamp also revealed similar fogging (can't get to a scanner right now), so the light gets around both curtains. The fogging does not extend above or below the frame on the negatives, but fades out to the sides, indicating that it is indeed leakage from the front, and not through the back. No pinholes are visible.
I'm pretty sure the light is getting past the light baffles (probably both of them), as suggested in the thread above, but please comment on this, if you know better. But how do I fix it? Somehow, I don't like the idea of bending/reshaping things inside my (mostly) perfectly working camera...
My fed 5 has some "furry" seals on the baffles which the fed 2 doesn't have, could I use something like that? and where might one get such seals??
Hope this describes the problem in adequate, and to too much extent. Help appreciated.
