Medium Format that leaves digital imprint on Film like this?

  1. Hi all,
    Just a quick question: does anyone know which camera produced an image like this? To leave the digital imprint on the 120 film....
    The image is cropped from scan of film:
    Any help would be appreciated!
  2. This is a cross-posting of the same question here:
    Medium Format that leaves digital imprint on Film like this?
    Henry, as pointed out in the original thread, you need to click on the image link. It's pretty clear that what Poulette is asking about is not the manufacturing defect in some Kodak film that the thread you link to discusses.
  3. Looks like the shutter speed, aperture, mode, and lens model, the last being P80.
    I suspect, as with many medium format cameras, this is a property of the back, and not the camera. (But you need the right camera to go with it.)
    If there is a P80 lens, which camera does it go with?
  4. I've had a couple medium format cameras which imprinted similarly to this: Pentax 645NII and Fuji GA645. Sorry I don't have any negs at hand for a direct comparison. Best wishes,
  5. Which format is the image itself? 6x6, 6x7, 6x8, 6x8 or 6x4,5 cm?
    Not very much MF cameras imprint exposure data on the gap between the images, so stating the image format will narrow down the possbilities even more.
  6. The one you linked to is definitely a Contax 645:
    (1/)250 - shutter
    F.11 - aperture
    M(anual) - mode
    P(lanar)80(mm)/(f)2 [which is the widest aperture setting] - lens
    120 - film format
