Great camera, but mine seems to misfire sometimes and I would love to get it working correctly again.

Anyone know of a US repair shop that works on these?

Best experiences with my 35 RC and 35 RD. Okay, it's not in USA...

Contact the eBay seller that goes by - jagmanjaguar1

I know he works on the 35RC and 35RD.

Best Regards,

Thank you for the suggestions. I was also told Mark Hama works on these. He is mostly known as a Yashica guy. I miss the days when John Hermanson was the answer to this question.

Do NOT use Mark Hama unless it is for Yashica TLRs, which is the one thing he seems to know.
I just had the worst experience with him, 2 cameras sent in for CLA, months of no contact, no answering phone calls, no returning emails. Then I got the cameras back in worse shape than when I sent them in. (A Zeiss Vitessa and Contessa).
He was extremely responsive to get the business, but that is where it ended.

I don't know about the US, but my Olympus selection went to Luton Cameras.

Any competent repair ship can take care of your SP. I've sent two to a semi-local outfit (can't even think of the name) and they did great work.

Nippon photo clinic in NYC. They do a very good job. Recently fixed one of mine including fabricating a new film advance lever screw (the original had stripped). Alot of pros use them.
