You haven't clarified if the scratches are on the base side,emulsion side,or both.
Very hard to diagnose without this information..
Visited the local camera technician, who replaced the worn pressure plate for one in a much better state for a very reasonable price. Just took another dud roll through and the base side seems to be significantly better, so it's time to load a proper roll and shoot it when I'm free.
Hi. I have a similar problèmes with an EOS 1. Did the replacement solved the problem ?
I polished the pop but et doesnt solve thé problèmes maybe a varnish can help ?
