Blue color tinges on edges of Ektar 100 w/ 120mm

Post by brianentz »

Just processed my first C41 and I am finding what is definately a blue tinge on the left and right edges of the film. About 1/5 to 1/4 of the edges. It's graduated in and then becomes normal. The film is Ektar 100 in 120mm. Could I have somehow exposed the film while it was still rolled? Or is it more likely a matter of poor agitation? I'm using steel reels and inversion tanks. Should I try agitating more or less? Examples attached. Any ideas?
