    Sputnik repair (the camera, not the satellite...)

    Hi all--
    I have a Sputnik stereo camera that has an issue I need help with. The two lenses are not focusing the same. I tried multiple things to get them aligned and all that, but no dice. I am hoping someone can recommend a good repair person that can help me get it back up and running again. Any leads would be great.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    Have you tried Fedka or Oleg? Fedka's got a repair guy on contract who does good work on other FSU stuff, and Oleg does good work as well.

    They deal with mostly "normal" 35mm rangefinders/other 35mm cameras, but as they're FSU specialists maybe they can do something for you or they know someone who can.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    It's quite straightforward to adjust the focus on the Sputnik, and hard to break anything. You need a small screwdriver to slacken off the three tiny grub screws holding the gear to the front of each lens, and a piece of ground glass to focus on.
