    Camera Rebuild and Repair??

    I have 2 Canon AE-1's (one program) that are in need of the typical run through. Cleaning, lubing and adjusting. I have a local guy that does great work but at $120ish a body. I found the below for $60 - $80, depending on any parts that need replacing... I'd have to ship, but thats minor.....

    I'd like to support a local guy... Especially someone in the art of old film cameras, but....... You get the idea.

    Anyone here of the above repair joint? Anyone know of something similar?

    I had a Minolta repaired by Garry's Camera http://www22.brinkster.com/garryscamera/ and was quite satisfied. He also repairs Pentax and I believe Canon. He charges a flat fee for a repair which includes CLA.

    I have my Minolta XG-M's cleaned every other year by Camera's Etc. in Newark, Delaware. Very happy with them.
    Thank you.

    John Titterington does my Minolta SRTs but I'm not sure if he works on anything with electronics. You can ask him. His email addy is JTCamera@aol.com.
