Welcome to Classic Camera Repair

Are you looking for someone to professionally repair, restore, service or overhaul your classic camera? If so, I am the man for you!

I have many year's experience with mechanical and partially electronic cameras and so I am in the position to repair cameras, lenses and accessories, including autofocus lenses

The main makes of camera that I repair include Rollei and Rolleiflex, Nikon, Hasselblad, Minolta, Zeiss Ikon, Linhof, Konica, Olympus, Pentax, Mamiya and Canon. You will find an overview of the makes of camera and shutters that you can send to me for repair, or overhaul, on the "Camera Makes" page

I have a well-equipped workshop with a complete range of the necessary test equipment, special tools, spare parts, exploded drawings and manufacturer's repair manuals.

The use of classic cameras

In today's digital age, we can ask ourselves whether classical, mechanical cameras can still be still useful. Apart from their use by collectors, there are certainly applications in which classic cameras are indispensable, for example:

  • In expeditions to polar regions
  • In mountaineering or other extreme winter sports
  • For travel in countries with high humidity, such as the tropics
  • For journeys to remote regions where mains electricity is not available

In addition, classic cameras still have a much higher resolution content than digital cameras (equivalent to between 40 and 50 pixels for slide films). Ambitious photographers have also the possibility to do the settings for a picture (aperture, shutter speed, etc.) by their own and appropriate for the scenery, without being a "slave" of a camera programme.

Rollei 35

An evergreen amongst the Classic Cameras: The Rollei 35

The compact Rollei 35 has become very popular with generations of photographers due to its high quality and robust build. I am very experienced in repairing these cameras, which often find their way to my workshop.
