Whether your camera seems to be acting just a bit “off” or it’s gotten so bad you think a potato would take better photos than your brick of a camera, we are here to help you out.
We work on a flat-fee system, because we believe in doing the same process to every single camera. The fix that makes a functioning camera work better, and a broken camera work at all, may be the same thing. We know where to look for issues and what to do when we find them. If there’s something wrong we will find it and make it better, and all of these repairs are covered in the flat fee.
Beyond the heavy repairs, our services include recalibrating the shutter (which means your camera should shoot true to the lighten/darken dial), cleaning optical components, fresnels, viewing lenses, mirrors, etc. Our team carefully cleans the external components and replaces the leather skins (they must be removed to access internals). All cameras are film tested and won't be returned until they are producing excellent exposures. All cameras receive between 2 and 4 hours of hands-on time from our team.
All necessary repair work is performed by a trained technician using specially designated tools and equipment. Replacement parts, if used in the course of repair, are fully refurbished and guaranteed. Because of their refurbished nature, previous wear may be present on any replacement components.
Each camera we service comes with a 90 day warranty.
Which models does this service cover?
This repair service covers all folding SX-70 camera models. The images shown here are just a few of the common SX-70 folding camera types.
*This excludes the SLR 680/690 which has its own repair service.
Notes on Leathers
While we’d love to save the original leather skins, it just isn’t possible. The fasteners allowing the camera to be taken apart and serviced are located underneath. Since there is no way to peel the skins up without ruining them, they must be replaced with your choice of either black or tan genuine leather skins. They are fresh, new and Italian, what more could you want?
Convert your SX-70 to shoot 600 film.
Tired of keeping a supply of different film types to use between your 600 and SX-70 cameras? We can service your SX-70 and convert it to use 600 film.
