I just posted this at another forum, but I figure I will hedge my bets and post it here too. I was wondering if you guys could offer some advice. I recently (yesterday)purchased a Canon VT and after exposing my first roll (trix in diafine), I noticed there is a hole in the second curtain. Now this isn't a huge problem, as now that I know it is in the second curtain, I can advance as quickly as possible and limit any effect on the picture, but it is still a rather annoying problem. It is only a tiny hole, barely visible when looking at the curtain, but it of course wreaks havoc on the image if I take my time composing the next image without advancing from the last one. Are there any DIY tricks that could solve this problem, how much would a repair cost (I am guessing a lot), or should I just advance very quickly?
In any case, I like the camera and the great lenses that it came with (35/1.8
and 100/3.5). Here are example shots where the phenomenon is apparent. Nothing interesting yet, as I was stuck at home.
