    If you rip the tape holding the film to the film cassette's inner spool, it can create a static spark or two or three that fogs the last few frames on the roll of 35mm film...I learned that lesson long ago. So...always use scissors to cut the tape that holds the film to the cassette's inner spool!

    I was wondering about that F3HP and MD-4 motorized film rewind feature mentioned above by Johnny Garcia--I suppose if the air is kind of dry, motorized rewinding might create static sparks. Still, I think this is a light leak that's biting you at some point in the process!
