Who repairs Rollei 35S and cost
I bought a Rollei 35 S with many problems.
First of all , you cant unload the film at daylight because small gears do not turn to film side , only one way.The subject turning button do not work.
30 speed gets locked to open.
And the distance ring turns very heavily.
Who can repair , change parts with originals and to what approximate price ?
Thank you ,
Mustafa Umut Sarac

Oceanside Camera Repair, Harry has my 35s right now. http://www.rolleirepairs.com/ Mine is 150usd including shipping for a CLAC plus cabibration of the light meter to take silver oxide batteries. This is my first experience with Oceanside so I'll let you know how it goes. I purchased the camera new in 1979 but hadn't used it in a long time and wanted to start using it again. Figured it was due for a service.
Roger and other friends , thank you very much for all help.
I bought the camera for 120 dollars and there are so much things to do.
Repair cost 120 euros. I will use it at f:16 at 60 speed or higher because last element of Sonnar internal dirty and 30 not works.
I wrote to Sherry Krauter to fix only the lens and I will manage all other problems.
Mine have no cell and no cell cover also , does cell stay in the camera without a cover , I dont think so.
I want to make camera work in poor light very much because of rembrandt effect.
I really have no money and starving to fix the camera.
I hope Sherry give me a cheap price.
I understand, I'm unemployed and it took two months for me to get the money together after sending it in for an estimate. The plus with mine is that I'm the original owner and the camera has always be well cared for. I even still have the box and owners manual.
Yes Roger , I must do it , collect money. Your camera saw good days and you have had to pay tribute to this old friend. Do you have pictures to share , I think you might collect excellent pictures in 30 years.
Good question Umut, I shoot a lot of slides and have them packed away in a storage closet. I'll have to take a look and see what I have.
