Hey Gang,

I've got a Gianini Scientific 35mm (eyemo based camera). It has a full aperture plate (from perf to perf frame width). I'd like to replace it with interchangeable 1.85 and academy aperture plates. Are there any of those easily available?

Thanks,
Paul

Try contacting visual products in ohio. They should be able to make you what you want, or perhaps even have a few in stock. That's assuming that your camera takes the exact same plate as an eyemo.

You could also try here:

Last spring I bought a few NOS Eyemo Academy plates from them on eBay. If they're all out, I might have an extra one.

Hey Todd,

Thanks. I'll scan my plate and post it here so you can check its match to yours.

Paul,

That appears to be the same as an Eyemo plate, except for the two extra holes in the relieved area. If the sources mentioned earlier don't have any, let me know. I think I still have an extra one -- finding it might be the hard part.
