My Mamiya Woes Continue

This was originally part of the previous post but I’ve now separated it so the post can be searched and found by anyone looking to build a case against me for gross stupidity.

1 The first shot of the third roll of film is taken, and wound on, with the blanking plate in place.
2 After taking the first seven shots I go to take the eighth and final shot, because it has the 6×9 backing, and find that the film back cover is loose. I was pretty sure it was snapped into place but apparently not so most, if not all, shots should have some serious light leakage on it.

In all, I now have potentially three rolls of guffed film, rather than just two. At least the lens was fully extended.
Scans of the first two rolls still to come.
