    Hi Everyone,
    I'm starting to see consecutive unexposed areas on my strips of film shot with my Nikon F2. Can anyone suggest a in-house repair shop in LA, San Fernando Valley, Pasadena etc? I have used Authorized Camera Repair in Woodland Hills before but they couldn't fix my previous F2. I see on the search feature here there is a mention of General Camera Repair in Pasadena and Walters Camera Repair near downtown. Anyone uses either of these places before? Any others worth checking into? Thanks for suggestions.
    Regards,
    Marc

    Sover Wong is the very best person for the F2. He'll do it correctly the first time. My F2 he rebuilt has been perfect for 5 years. Its not cheap but you only need to do it once (maybe once every ten years I think, if I get to 10 years on my F2 then I'll send it to him just to check). He's worth it.

    I'll third the recommendation, send your F2 to Sover and it will return in about as good of a condition as when it left Nikon new. (at least operationally)
