    I have an old (but still working) GTN with a kind of makeshift finder glass (I broke the original trying to remove it for cleaning - duh). I know this is a real long shot, but does anyone repair/renovate these great little cameras or should I look for another. Any ideas? Regards, Blightford.

    You could try Mark Hama. I'm not sure how much he's working these days, but you can ask him. I'm sure he could fix it.

    Yeah, Mark Hama did a great job on an old camera of mine. Quick turn-around, great service, reasonable price.

    Russ is without a doubt the man to have work on your GTN camera. He is thorough, competant, meticulous and a good comunicater. I have complete faith in him with these cameras.
