Camera Repair Manuals - Repair Training Manuals
Excellent advice comes from the owner of Classic Camera Workshop regarding camera repair manuals. "Please understand these manuals are not do it yourself instructions... It is assumed by the original publishers that specialized training has been given to the user. These manuals also assume that the user will have the special tools, parts, test equipment, lubricants and specialized knowledge needed to successfully complete the repairs in a proper manner. Before you attempt to repair your camera be sure that you understand that cameras are very complex, precision devices that require specialized tools, techniques, expertise and test equipment. Do not overestimate your abilities, most qualified camera technicians will not work on cameras that have been tampered with or try to put together your pile of parts."
