: I have a Miranda Sensorex, bought new in 1967 (?), that eventually packed it in. I suspect that water/rust got into the battery opening. Repeated attempts to repair failed. But I would like to have it going again. Can anyone recommend a sound, competent repair shop? I live in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Hello John,

Water is the enemy of all cameras. Salt water is even worse. If there is any possibility that the water went beyond the battery chamber, the camera is probably beyond economic repair, especially since you mention repeated attempts to repair it. I'd save the lens and look for another working Miranda camera body - it would be less expensive. If you have a strong sentimental attachment to the camera, you might try Essex Camera Repair in New Jersey. They claim to be able to fix almost everything. You are talking here about a repair which will exceed $100.

You'll find lots of interesting information about Miranda cameras on the unofficial Miranda Camera Home Page http://mirandacamera.com/
