Daniel und Jonathon, Some people have difficulty verbalizing a condition tha they see.The problem is that the left and right edges of the frame are not parallel to the edges of the film and the upper and lower edges are not at right angles to the edges.
Then the cause should be obvious to any Rollei-ite! :-) Jerry Jonathon Bowman wrote:
Hey Daniel, I mean the way the bottom of the frame angles up as it goes to the right, and then hooks at the end. And the top edge then correspondingly angles downwards to the left, and goes fuzzy opposite the hook on the bottom. I've never seen a similar problem on any other MF cameras that I've used.

If you hadn't said anything, I would have just assumed that it was part of the scene.

Take a look at the upper-left, and lower-right corners of this image to see what I mean: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3111/2795084241_328843dcaa.jpg I've already shown this to a Rollei repair dude, and he wasn't altogether sure what the problem was. Any ideas? Is something out of wack in the interior of my camera, or is it a film transport issue? There are no problems with film flatness -the softness of this picture is only a result of it being 'scanned' using a digicam and taping the negs to a window. Not a be-all-end-all cuz I can still use 98% of the frame, but kind of annoying nonetheless - especially if I want to print rebate as well. Thanks for your help, Jonathon -----
