    need to repair cameras-where?

    Okay, I have a couple TLRs that need repair, and I have yet to find a place that will work on them-most places deal with smaller formats or just not the brands I have.
    I have a Seagull that went and lost its focus adjustment, and I would like to be able to use close focus and fit it back in its case.
    Also, I have a rolleimagic II with a shutter out of adjustment. The meter doesn't work, although I have hears selenium meters can usually be brought back to life. Either way, I use the manual override, but the shutter either sticks, or the timing mechanism isn't working.
    Does anyone know of a place that would be willing to repair these cameras? I really want to get them working again. I really enjoy the Seagull I happen to possess, so i really want to find a place that will actually repair it, as well as a place that will repair the rollei.
    Thanks in advance.

    I've used KEH Repair for several 35mm and a couple of TLRs (Yashica). Been happy with the results. Not the cheapest, but quick, competent service.

    Could also give Garry's Camera Repair a call. He has done numerous 35mms for me. Not sure if he does TLRs, but his service was good and prices were great.

    I checked with Zacks Camera Repair to see if they could service these two cameras, as most places will not fix rolleimagic series cameras, and I have yet to hear anything back from them.
    The selenium cell also needs to be repaired or replaced, and I did manage to find a company that still makes brand new selenium cells.
    http://www.otc.co.uk/megatron/homepage.html makes the new cells of various sizes and sensitivity ratings.

    I think Megatron is out of business... I can see this in their front page

    "
    Megatron closed down operations at the end of February 2010. OTC provides these Megatron pages for information only.
