    I cannot find the Certo 6 / Jurgen Kreckels folding camera web site.

    I cannot find Certo 6 on eBay.

    I have not heard or read anything about him closing his doors or retiring.

    Anyone know whats happened?

    with thanks,
    Sam H.

    Try certo6 rather than Certo 6 on eBay.

    His website does seem to be down.

    there was a entry in the classifieds
    that mentioned a different / new name for his website.

    i wouldn't buy a camera from him or send anything to him
    to work on after he "repaired" my mamiya ...


    i guess YMMV

    I hope he is still there since I Just purchased a Camera from him through E-Bay on 05/17/2010 it has not showed up yet am hopping for Saturday or Monday.
    The note I got from him was from www.certo6@ptd.net which is not working at this time??

    he does not respond to emails very well.

    you might try to call him on the phone.
    you can find his archived website through
    archive.com ... and call him.

    hopefully you will be able to get in touch ...

    My order from Certo 6 arrived 5/22/2010 so he is still there and the camera was as advertised and works well.

    I sent an email to Mr. Kreckel yesterday asking for an update on my Ercona II and got a prompt reply.

    I understand he went to Holland and should be back soon if not back already.
