    Hi,

    I just realized that a screw to hold the front part of the camera and a plastic cover are missing from my camera.

    Where can I order these parts? Any information would be appreciated.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    I would probably try Calumet, they are a Cambo dealer, and sell many different models on their website.

    If they are the screw and plastic cover I am thinking of, they are on the side of the front standard, and the plastic cover goes over the screw, right?

    The screw is important, but the plastic cover is not needed. I have owned a few Calumet/Cambo cameras and the plastic covers always break off. They are pointless.

    Like Dave said, just contact Calumet. If they are too expensive...try a local hardware store for the screw.

    Dave and Ryan,

    Yup,

    I am not sure why it came off to begin with. My friend was using the camera since I do not use it that much. I just needed it for a product shoot, and I realized it just now...

    Will try Calumet. Thanks for information.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    WAIT!
    I just realized I have both the parts that I believe you need.

    If your interested, send me and email. I need to make sure they are the right part.

    I find that it often shortcuts questions from customer service personnel who do not know about LF if you first contact Jose in the repairs department at Calumet in Chicago. He knows what he is talking about and can tell you exactly what part numbers you need when you call to order the parts.

    hello, I have several Cambos and they all take metric screws, after all, they are made in the Netherlands, so I would check which kind of screw the camera takes, metric or imperial.

    9 year old thread, I hope they weren't still waiting for an answer.
