Hi, everyone. I've shot virtually all my Kodak HIE through my Pentax ME. Love that little camera for that job, with the exception of having to live with the occasional problem I get from the pattern that shows up from the dimpled pressure plate. Usually this dimpled pattern does not show up unless I have a blank area of certain tonality on the image (think: sky!). I can usually overcome it when I am printing, but there have been a couple of prints where, for me, I feel the pattern just shows up too much and it ruins the print for me. This is only a problem on HIE, I am guessing because of that film's lack of antihalation backing? So I am thinking about casting about for another manual/semi-manual camera with a smooth platen to just make my printing sessions easier with HIE. Does the K-1000 have the same patterned, or dimpled, platen? I feel the need to investigate other old manual cams and wanted to start with the Pentax family, since I also shoot an MZ-S and share the lenses with the ME. Thanks in advance.
