bmac, i got a rolleicord v from a guy in SF and had it serviced close to home in mountain view. int'l camera technicians. they're at 720 villa street, right off castro. they overhauled my 'cord for about $200 and i was very pleased. it was my first experience at having a camera worked on.. scary at first, but now i realize the value. they were very booked up.. it took 2 weeks to get my camera back, but they were honest about that and had my camera ready when they said it would be.
