Question about Cameras
I recenlty bought a used mamiya 7 with a 67 mm lense. It is sharp in the middle of the negatives but the eages out of focus. What could be the problem?
Hey Paul FB,
One reason this could be happening is if the film pressure plate is set incorrectly. If you are using 120 film you should of course have it set to 120, and if you’re using 220 film you should have it set to 220. If you have the pressure plate set correctly the plate might be broken, and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If your subject is in the middle of the frame and the edges of your images are either background or foreground you might just have the aperture set to a large aperture resulting in a shallow depth of field. I hope this helps!
