GrahamS wrote:Bravo, Alex! Those are superb photos. I think that the exposure is pretty close to perfect. You have made that old Ikoflex perform really well. That Tessar will not be coated, so the lens hood was a good idea. The light leak could be from poor light seals on the camera back - just a thought.

I was thinking you could have an internal reflection seeing as that light is coming from opposite directions in the two instances, something like some paint has come off of the side of a lens element towards the rear, letting light bounce around inside the film chamber. My Jupiter-12 was doing the same thing until I covered up a little area that had been worn on the side of the rear element. Next time out, no flares!
You'd have to pull out all the elements to see if there is any paint missing from the edges of the elements. It's there to keep the light away from the interior of the lens barrel which can be highly reflective in some instances.

Im going to try both velvia film and the tripod, Medalist II with a Rada back, unit extensions, portra and telek lenses, the Rada will have the 4,5x6 mask so lets experiment a bit.
the phone plus the Gossen Digisix and then I take a decision of which one I think its correct.
Yes to the hood, I'm already buying one to cover the Inos II and Superb, same lens
I just checked the seals, they seem fine, one test could be shot a roll with the camera "taped" around, but its not an effective way to find the light leak.
