    Last weekend, I was telling a friend that I need to send my Hasselblad to a repair guy in Adelaide, and was getting it ready to box it up. Anyway, she works as a Qantas flight attendant and was telling me that she was on a flight from Melbourne to Hong Kong a few weeks ago and there was a passenger gently nursing and playing with his camera. She had a chat to him and he explained that he would not let his Hasselblad out of his sight, so he was personally carrying it to Hong Kong to get it repaired.

    Good thing he didn't have to buy it a separate seat, like cello players do.

    You can pry my 180mm CF from my cold, dead hands?

    Who have you used in Melbourne, Raoul? Camera Clinic?

    Yes, Camera Clinic - for a full service, replacing some foam dampers for the shutter plus fixing a shutter.

    Also used CR Kennedy for some spare parts - this is the official Hasselblad servicer.
