    Eric Hendrickson - CLA is first rate

    My Pentax Spotmatic SPII was acting up. It needed a general clean lube and adjust as well as some repairs to the curtain sync (getting partially exposed frames) and some flake/paint loss in the pentaprism. The light seals were all about gone as well and needed to be replaced.

    I asked around on many photo forums and found Eric Hendrikson of Pentax Camera Service. I sent it out, he gave it a look and shot me an estimate, and I just received the camera a few days ago from Eric.

    The camera came back to me in like new condition. Eric fixed all of the above, as well as a bent rewind crank. The film advance is like butter, and the camera is showroom clean inside and out. This in about a three week turnaround before Christmas. I am very, very pleased.

    Most of the time we spend telling everyone about our bad experiences in life. I just wanted to pass along that Eric is a great technician and restored an almost 40 year old camera to like new condition.

    His web site is www.pentaxs.com. He only works on Pentax cameras, I wish he could refurbish my Ricoh TLS which needs an overhaul as well, as I would send it out in a heartbeat.

    I would highly recommend Eric to anyone needing Pentax camera repairs.

    take care,
    steve

    Seconded. He even managed to get a split-image screen in my SPII and made it my go-to SLR body.

    I would also recommend Eric. He has overhauled all my Spotmatics and SVs, and is great to deal with. Quality work for very reasonable prices, even including shipping from and to Norway.

    Eric has serviced my Pentax cameras and lenses for about fifteen years now. His work and his prices are terrific!
