    Has anyone had to get a Fujifilm TX-1 repaired in the U.S. and where have you sent it? I'm not sure if I am to send it to Fuji USA or if I have to fork over $$$ to send it to Japan for repairs. Or does anyone know of an independent XPan repairman?

    It has what appears to be a small oil deposit on the shutter curtain and sometimes when the curtain closes it will not close up all the way and the camera locks up.

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    I can't call Fuji USA until Thursday to see if they will repair it (of course, I am not planning on getting fixed under any warranty) as I am at work past their hours of operation and figure on a lengthy period of being on hold.

    I can ask my local repairperson if she'd work on it. I know she services most modern 35mm SLR cameras, and owns an Xpan herself. I'll probably run into her after work tomorrow when I stop by the camera store on my way home.
