We can repair and service many vintage film cameras and lenses. and have been doing so since 1994. Our services include light seal replacement, lens cleaning and shutter servicing. We can repair specific faults or check and service your equipment as required. We do not repair Auto Focus cameras, AF lenses or Digital equipment. Please see the bottom of the page for a list of other things we no longer repair.
Due to the large range of cameras and lenses we can repair, coupled with the age of much of this equipment, it is difficult to give a list of fixed repair prices. We have a minimum charge of £15 but do not charge to check and test your photographic equipment, only return postage. The best thing to do is to contact us by email or phone and discuss your needs and if we can effect a repair before sending anything to us.
However there are a couple of things that we do on a regular basis that will act as a guide to our prices:
Pentax ME Super service and repair £90.00. This includes new mirror box bushes, perished ones cause 99% of faults, new internal foams, new light trapping foams and mirror damper fitted (We only use the best foam imported from Japan) A full check, clean and service.
Pentax K1000 service and repair £90.00. This includes new light trapping foams and mirror damper fitted (We only use the best foam imported from Japan) A full check, clean and service.
Replacement film compartment seals and mirror damper on most 35mm cameras £30.00. We don’t use the cheap foam that is sold online, we fit the correct material in the right thickness for each individual camera.
Please feel free to call or message us with your requirements.
