View Full Version : Light Seals?
I could not find it, but was there a discussion on replacing light seals for the GSN. I just got one and there does not appear to be any in the camera. I test it now, but the battery is fine every light works, the rangefinder is accurate, so the only thing I'm concerned about is the light seals. Any recommendation on who to send it to for CLA?
I bought a GSN in the same condition that you did, and I made new seals myself using black craft foam, I guestimated the thicknesses, cut it with a straight edge and a exacto knife, and glued them in place. I have put several rolls of film through this camera, and several others that I used this method on, and it worked fine. I believe the whole procedure took approximately 30-45 minutes.
Matt Denton has a tutorial for replacing light seals in a Yashica GSN with sticky-back felt and cotton string (link). Worked for me!
I contacted Jon Goodman via email and he had an GSN set already cut out and is selling them to me. I find he is quick and professional. My other oldies will be treated to new seals shortly. Thanks for recommending him!
