    Camera repairs Melbourne?

    Hey, I'm new to APUG along with film. As I have just brought myself a Rolleiflex 3.5E and would like to know a shop that can service the camera. Any places you can recomend that has had experience with Rollei's, would be helpfull. I'm in Melborune and can't wait to put a roll of film through it.

    Shane.

    Hi Shane - welcome to APUG!

    here's a recent thread of Melbourne repair shops: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum51/6...s-members.html

    Shutterbox would probably do an excellent job - they fixed the "bent-out-of-shape" viewfinder on my Rolleiflex...

    Cheerio, Marc

    I'll second Shutterbox and the Camera Exchange also do repairs inhouse. I've had good service from both.

    I have had experience with the Camera Clinic, the Shutterbox and Nagami Camera Sevice. I'm very happy with Nagami who fixed my OM4 mirror problem for about a third the price the others wanted.

    Welcome to the forum Shane. I've used the Camera Clinic a few times for large format optic work and have been very satisfied. I haven't tried anyone else yet.

    Greets from another APUG forumite!
    My niece had her ancient Canon A1 SLR serviced at Michaels Camera House 3 weeks ago and it was a $95.00 / 12 hour turn around (!). That's certainly an improvement on the usual quoted "4-6 weeks" turnaround in most places, but I agree with others here that Camera Clinic in Collingwood (has done servicing for me) and Camera Exchange are all in the top-notch.

    For a moment I thought you were talking about Michaels, but now I realise that Vintech is in the building on the opposite corner.

    My only experience is with Shutterbox in Hartwell. I had my Rolleiflex 2.8F CLA'd and shutter replaced there about 3 years ago. They treated it like my baby and it hasn't missed a beat since. Also a much more convenient location than the CBD - for me anyway .
