645NII film imprinting


I just got my first two rolls of FP4 from the lab. The processing quality lis so-so, it looks like they have burned one of the frames, and cut the negatives while being on drugs, but I cannot see the imprinting on the negative (F-number, speed...), although I activated the option in the custom functions.
Where should it be located ? between frames (on the 56mm length), or on the side of the negative (41mm length) ? The camera manual tends to show it is printed on the shortest side, but it is not explicit (at least in my edition )
Has anyone a scan example of what should the imprints look like ? google images is not my friend this time.

It is on the side of the frame.

Thanks for the link.

It's weird I cannot see the imprint on my FP4 rolls. Maybe the contrast is too low and I missed it. I will check again tonight.
