    Talk to me guys. Is this Fuji 100c film just not meant to be sharp? My exposures are great. Always on a tripod. Anyone else have this experience? I have sharp negatives. Thoughts?

    I have not had that experience with the 100c. It can be a nice sharp film, very good color rendition.

    Can you post examples of what you are getting?

    Ive got one of the backs that I have not yet used but looking at it, its possible that the springs are not pushing the film package back up properly anymore. A lack of tension may cause the film plane to recede into the back and cause an out of focus issue. There is also a thin glass plate in mine between the film and camera. Make sure its clean and oil free as well.
