This metal plate may be of interest to those concerned about the precision of the plastic pressure plate used on Super 8 film cartridges. You remove it before sending off your film for processing

Does it work?

Has anybody used it?

Is it worth the investment?

 

Thanks,

MOY

The pressureplate was originally developed to try to correct / compensate for production failures with the kodak cartridges. In the early 2Ks the film jammed, film waved & breathed heavily. The PP did i prove a little apaert from jamming which was a direct assembly failure.

If your camera is worn do not expect euureka experience but it has the potential to improve imperfectio. It eill run a little heavier.

There is some promo clips om thr net somewhere. Check thrm out an see for your self.

You have to use your full real name in the forum, it's one of the rules. You have to contact Tim Tyler the site owner to make the change.

I have one but haven't used it for a while. The idea is to reduce breathing and jitter, and it does help. The downside is if you're using thicker emulsions like Vision, and your cameras motor isn't working to its full potential, the film may not advance. I had that happen twice, you,re done shooting only to find you still have 50ft of film in the camera.

Ahh, that makes sense as a lot of pull-down claws aren't designed to pull through that added friction.
