Camera Servicing in Melbourne
Good Morning Aussie APUG's
Having never had my cameras professionally cleaned or serviced, thinking it's about time I should probably do that. Was hoping that someone in Melbourne (or anyone out of Melbourne that knows someone in Melbourne) could recommend or advise on companies or persons that could provide this service. I'm a bit scared about handing over my equipment but think my NIkon FM2n and Bronica ETRs really do need a service. I live really close to where Helmut Brix had his shop but it is now closed so no longer a choice.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

With all respect to Kevins opinion, I found the Clinic to be a bit pricey, (admittedly I haven't tried them for a few years) and since another repairer/servicer I used has retired, I now use Camera Exchange in Lonsdale St and have found them to be good and reasonably priced. But, wherever you go the labour costs will see that you won't get any change from $100 even for the simplest of services. Maybe you should talk to all of them to get an idea of their quoting systems? That yellow-covered selling magazine from newsagents CAMERA TRADER always has lists of repairers. I have been told there is a very reputable repairer I think in QLD but I can't remember just now who it was. Good luck!
