K Fogged film

This problem looks very similar to 'canister light leak' - the edge area of the film is not clear and there appears to be extra exposure in the image area as well. The difference between the two problems is not the end result (fogging to the film) but the cause. In this instance light leaked through the top of a film canister that was being reused (see Figure 48.11).

Fault prevention: Bulk film loaders are a great idea and do save a lot of money but make sure that you check your canisters regularly to ensure light-tightness.
