I am getting the same problem. I bought a 100' roll at Henry's last Winter when it was half price. I wonder if they know something we don't. Tried Ilford HP5, Fomapan 400 no problem. Went back to tri-x and the streaks are back. Definitely the film is problematic


I would start by using a different memory card.


This is just an hypothesis, but I notice that in the picture with the "problem" that the spectra of the lights in question seem very narrow. It looks like the lights are hydrogen vapor (bluish lights) and sodium vapor (yellowish ones), whereas the lights without the problem appear to have broad spectrums. It could just be that your lens has problems with ...


Fog, mist, moisture, particles in the air? In Alaska sometimes in the winter we get ice fog ( small frozen water particles in the air ). This results in being able to see a ray of light shooting through the air. you can see shafts of light shooting up all over town even if you can not see the light source. Normally one can not see light on air molecules ...


In my opinion that "flare" is caused by a dirty lens. Probably you atempted to clean it with a wipe movement, that is why the flare has directionality. Use a micro fiber cloth. I recently bought some that sells for the "kitchen" and they cost arround $1 dolar. I use theese for cleaning all the time cellphones, glasses and tablets. There is a chance that ...


Nothing is ever a disaster because it can always be used as an example. : ) I notice that the before and after shots you include for comparison have a different kind of luminary from the first one with the "issue." You show "solitary" lamp housings and "triple-headed" ones that appear as you expected. Looking at the reflections of the "solitary" lamps on ...


The large and nearly perfect circle(s) often found in photos taken with an IR filter are often referred to as "hotspots", and they are mostly caused by internal reflections in the lens and filter combination. To my eye, the most obvious spots in your example image are these sorts of hotspots. The internal reflections are not absorbed by all len and barrel ...


I have seen the same issue and found that sealing the filter to the filter folder (Lee in my case) made the spots go away. I think that because the IR filter stops so much light and therefore the expose time is so long then any light creeping in through tiny gaps between the filter and its holder will allow any small specks of dust on the back of the filter ...
