    I am having some problems with my prints, i am using an olympus OM10 SLR, and on about 5 prints on every roll of film i am getting these thick red lines down the photos which are not part of the photograph... I would attach an example excpect i cannot attach files here for some reason, but does anyone know why this might be happening? I have used different lenses and different types of film but it is still happening... Would it be light leaking in the camera body?
    I would really appreciate any responces!!! thanks :)

    Can others edit my Photos:

    It sounds like a light leak in your camera to me. Maybe the door doesn't close tightly?

    P.s. You can't attach files because it's for subscriber's only (on the forum). You could upload them to someplace free like photobucket and put in the img code.

    No need to look for you. You definitely have a light leak. It could be around the door or the advance shaft and so on. Seal kits are mostly pretty easy to do, but if you are un sure about it take it in for service. From what I have seen on ebay, your camera is going for less then what a service call would cost. So, unless you have a [font=&quot]sentimental [/font]attachment to the camera it may be better off becoming a paper weight on your desk to make room for an upgrade.
