andec pressure plate

Recommended Posts

I've been searching for an andec pressure plate for some time now. Does anyone have any thoughts on where or from whom one of these might be purchased.

I thought Andec still sold them!?

Last year they emailed me and I think told me they were no longer sold. I can't tell because the email was phrased oddly:



Thanks for contacting and interest in our services.


Sorry to tell you, that we can offer since some time the pressure plate .


Kind regards

not woth it. i had one and beside the fiddling anoyance the result is poor. it DOES improve sharpness a lil bit but not as good as expected. To be honest, normal 8 is waaay better if we're talking "sharpness"

however, go for 16mm. it's cheaper and much better.

I haven't used mine in 10 yrs. Stopped using it when a Canon 1014E I was using at the time would no longer advance the film with the plate in. Got to 50ft on the frame counter and the roll was still at the start when I removed it. However the same camera would advance the film without the plate in. So my assumption is that it puts extra strain on the motor, and don't want to put any added risk on my current running cameras.
