Bolex EBM Presure Plate??

Post by Tyler » Mon Feb 08, 2010 7:45 pm

I just shot 2 rolls of 16mm film in my bolex EBM, and I think I might have forgotten to push the presure plate back into place after loading the film. Will this make my footage completely useless or just slightly out of foucs??? Has anyone done this before??

it happened to my Bolex double super8 too. The first frames were in focus then , with the speed up it was out of focus, but not very much, still useable, it depends by focal lenght and iris f/stop.
good luck
