    CLA/Repair for XA4?

    Been using my XA4 and the shutter has randomly stopped firing. Any suggestions as to where I should send it off to? I live in Manhattan now, and if there are any repair guys up this way, that would be awesome.

    I found someone a couple years ago. He was about $100 for the CLA and a small repair. For the life of me now, I can't find his e-mail. I'll keep looking...

    Shi Kim of Essex Camera. I received an estimate by e-mail of $110 plus shipping for CLA, seals, and a repair to fix the loose film counter window. No experience beyond that, as I never had the work done. Looks like he might have been affected by Sandy last year, so I don't know if he's still working or not.

    Unfortunately, I believe that Essex is out of business. I have considered them in the past and have been unable to get in contact with them.

    I appreciate your help though!

    Any other suggestions out there?

    But note his turnaround time. Unfortunately, seems to be the norm now for "specialist" repair.

    Zuiko will only repair the original XA, not any of the newer variants, unfortunately.
