Hey everyone,

I'm going to be shooting a film with a 1014xl-s in a few weeks and just wanted to check on two quick things.

1) Is the 85 filter built into the camera useable with Vision2 500T in daylight conditions, or do I need to buy a filter to screw onto the lens in order to properly correct the color? I heard something about 85A versus 85B a while back and can't

2) Does anyone know of any problems using the GKFilm metal pressure plate with this camera? I heard a rumor of increased jamming, but if nobody else has had this problem...

Thanks!

If the camera is running strong, i wouldn't worry about it jamming. happened to me once with a beat cam. you'll need an external filter for daylight shooting. it'd be best to get an 85B.

But if the camera is running strong, you probably don't need the steady plate at all.

The Nikons and Canons are among the steadiest super-8 cameras made.
