I just found this:
GK-Film

The text is all in German, but the manucaturer claims that their "high precision contact plate" allows newer film stock to run in old cameras, reducing drag, and stuck films. In addition they claim that it'll improve focus on the film edges as the plate reduces film movement.

I haven't tried it yet, but if things are getting desperate out there with kodak catriges, why not give these guys a call?

regards,
Wolfgang

The Framemaster device has been discussed here since it originally came to the international market, oh, back 4 years ago or so. It was available in Germany since 2001/2, launched with an article in the CineMagica of the BCFI.

There is no conclusive resolution as to the benefits of this device. What is know of it in respect to real-life results can be read in the Super 8 FAQ by clicking here (at the end of the post dealing with Super 8 Cartridges in general).

The English site for the FrameMaster can be found at Andec's Website.

I personally would not endorse the device, in fact, I am unsure about any dealings with Herr Klose in general at the moment, as over the past 2 years, he has accumulated a certain track record for non-delivering on promised and listed products - the GK Precision Cartridge that incorporated a new pressure plate derived from the knowledge gained with the FrameMaster is now almost absolutely pure vapourware.
