    Exakta repair

    Hi all--
    I swear I found a post about this somewhere before, but I cannot seem to find it when I search...so if it is a repeat I am sorry! Anyway, I am looking for a recommendation for a place to repair a couple of Exakta bodies I have. One is a really really really clean VX500 that has some shutter speed issues (too fast if you can believe it!) and another is a VXii that has the usual wrinkled/pinholed curtain. So...if you have had an Exakta repaired and can lead me to a trustworthy place I would greatly appreciate it. I am in San Francisco, CA.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    There was a post a few days ago about an Exacta repair specialist in the UK, there's probably more parts etc in Europe as they were quite common cameras at one time.

    Thanks! Hopefully I can find something closer so I don't have to spend a fortune on shipping, but I will if need be!
