Hi all,
I ran a roll of HP5+ through a new-to-me Nikon FE. Lovely camera, my first with aperture priority and it handles superbly. However, it seemed to cause lots of micro scratches across the film. I checked the usual culprits, film path seemed clean, pressure plate seemed okay, but to double check I got an old blank roll and ran it through the camera. Lots of micro scratches. Ran a few more frames through without pressure plate touching - no scratches. Ran the rest of the roll through a Pentax K1000 and there were no scratches, so I'm sure the pressure plate of the FE is damaging it.

What are the options?
