Hi,

I have a new SBM factory-coverted Super 16 body. I've discovered that the aperture plate on these new cameras is black and not as scratch-free as the older ones (with the lighter shade of color). In fact, just from cleaning with an orangewood stick, it got roughed up. Anyone feel the same about this?

Does anyone know if this might yield abrasions on the film itself? It seems unlikely to me, as it took so little to scratch it.

About to shoot some stock for a Spirit Scan - so I suppose testing this would be a good idea. Opinions about this are very welcome though. Thanks!

Isaac
