Hi,

as the bright part is always in the same place - and has a very sharp line, I do not think it is a light leak. Could it be that the shutter gets stuck? I do not know the mamiya 645 but i have seen a similar problem on a 35mm SLR. The shutter did not run smoothly, and therefore the negatives where overexposed in part of the image.

maybe the experts around here will have a better idea of the reason for this problem.

greetings, Chris

Curtain Repair

The closing shutter curtain is hanging as it comes close. A good camera repair service can fix it for you quickly.

In the US check KEH.com. If you are across the pond, the postage may be a little rich but worth it.

That's my guess too. The line is too sharply defined to be a light leak. I have an old Canon FTb that exhibits the same problem, though in a different orientation since the shutter runs horizontally across the film gate rather than vertically as in your camera

It's usually an adjustment, not replacement situation.

Plenty of good repairers in the U.K. I am sure there was a thread on this on APUG. Do a search
