M2 burn hole?

hello RFF, I'd like to share my trouble with you. I scanned last roll from M2 and on some photos I have strange marks.



those bright points on the middle and the big one on the top-right. Pattern is identical every time it appear, sometimes stronger sometimes not. I Never had such problems, and quick inspection with flash light show no holes. Buy maybe I have to search better (how?).

Help appreciated.

Dust during scan or scratched film.
Nothing wrong with your leica unless if you can see a whole in the shutter curtain >.>
Or maybe the pressure plate is scratching the film, but it doesn't look like it.
This looks more like your processing guy did a botched job.

If it happens in every frame, then it may be a curtain issue.

Absolutely a pinhole in the shutter curtain causing the center spot. The other light streak may be related as the curtain moves across the film during film advance or rewind. I know with my M3 I turn the knob, let go, then grab to turn some more. Unlike a crank it is not a continual rewind motion so it could possible be causing some light to leak through.

Hi,

My money's on the scanner needing a clean. It's dust and fluff etc. Pinholes usually cause a bit of flare around them and vary from shot to shot.

Regards, David

I do also have the same problem from time to time, but the problem is never on all of the frames, just a few on each strip of film.

thank you gentlemen for input, today i developed another roll and there are no signs of hole, which is good but still weird.

Hi,

If you think of a pinhole in the blind as working like a pinhole camera then the "exposure" from the lens cap being off will depend on how long the cap is off and the size (aperture) of the pin hole. So not all frames will show it and a few shots taken together will have nothing showing from the pinhole.

Here's a sample showing lots of pinholes;-



Regards, David
