Subject: To all users. Re light leaks in 200 magazines.
Most users may have noticed this problem with 200 mags already. But
every 200 mag I have ever seen has a serious light leak. It is caused by
the shrinkage of the sound dampening material used inside the doors on
sides. Remember that any 200 mag is already 25-30 years old and the high
density rubber foam insulation shrinks with age.
If you own a 200 mag use should cover the opening inside the door, just
under the locking latch with a piece of black camera tape.
When the camera is still and on set, light filters through this opening
fogs 2-3 frames of film next to the opening. It shows up in post as flair
that occurs approximately 29-35 frames from the start frame of each shot.
So common is this problem that I immediately correct this problem on every
magazine I service.
