I came across this link looking for something else and wondered: is this the device I've ready so much about?

anybody out there used this? does it make a difference? for a bit of fiddling around, if it what it promises it true, I'm going to have to get myself one...

I hope it works -- mine just came in the mail today! (And it was really expensive -- almost $200 with shipping.) I'm going to test it soon.

It looks like it should help - it fits onto a cartridge perfectly. And it's very easy to pop on and off, which is nice.

Does anybody know if this works with the Fuji stocks -- like the Velvia reversal? Are their cartridges different? That's what I want to try the most, but I have to wait until Spectra gets it back in stock.

Anyway...I'll let you know whenever my test is done.

I had not possibility to test of this " special " pressure plate.
But, i can tell, the russian Super 8 reloadable film cartridge ( and all other russian Super 8 cartridges ) have
pressure plate inside of cartridge.

Olex, do you know if reloadable cartridges & stock loads are still available? I've never used one.

Russian Super 8 reloadable film cartridges not produced more, but, if you need, can ask me.
I must have small old stock.
