Repair your camera / camcorder or replace it?
There are many good reasons to professionally service durable film cameras, lenses, mid-price to high-end digital cameras, flashes, VHS camcorders and digital camcorders. In an uncertain economy, amateurs, video buffs and pro photographers choose camera repair instead of buying the latest model, saving hundreds of dollars. If a vintage camera has given you great satisfaction over the years, if you've become intimately familiar with the controls and you're uncomfortable with today's totally-electronic digital cameras and camcorders, you may decide to have your trusty older camera fixed instead of completely relearning how to take a picture.
Many film cameras from 1970 into the 1990s are well-made from materials like brass and steel, and can be repaired. If parts are needed they can be cannibalized from a broken camera. Some skilled technicians specialize on vintage models from Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta, Olympus, Ricoh, Leica, Mamiya, Hasselblad, Yashica and others.
Digital point-and-shoot models may need service, and the latest wave of digital SLRs (DSLRs) with their nifty ultrasonic self-cleaning sensors require periodic professional CCD/CMOS sensor cleaning. Most consumer digital camcorders require skilled service within the first three years of ownership. Your VHS camcorder can still be fixed. Whatever your need for camera and camcorder repair it's all right here with more than 300 camera repair shops in the US and Canada and extensive do-it-yourself resources when you have no other choice.
