i just got a k-3 and everything seems cool except that there's NO PRESSURE PLATE.
will everything certainly not work without one? im planning on just buying the cheapest k-3 i can find from ebay that definitely shows a pressure plate in the pictures and use it as parts or something.
will i be able to film without one?

i dont know anything about this stuff.

It will likely run but the footage will be out of focus, as there is nothing keeping the film pressed against the focus plane, hence its name: pressure plate.
