These things might be too big to put inside the camera. A sponge might be a
good solution. I'm not working with mags, the housing for the film in a
Scoopic looks pretty much like that of a Bolex.

I've never had this problem with the camera before and shot one roll since
(shot it in a few hours and then put it right back in the fridge till I sent
it out). The Scoopic is prism reflex.

Maybe fogging is not the right word? It didn't look like a wrong exposure,
it's these wide columns of overexposure that wave back and forth over the
image. I also sent it to Pac Lab, maybe that's the real problem?
