Can anyone recommend a repairman for a Kodak Ektra Camera?
Of course the shutter jammed after a few exposures...
I know it's the repairman's nightmare but anyone might dare to fix it...
thanks

If you're talking about classic Ektra, the 1940s system RF, then the only person I know of is in the U.S., Ken Ruth of Photography on Bald Mountain (http://www.baldmtn.com/).

No one is likely to have experience of repairing an Ektra -- but competent repair people should be able to figure it out. The camera's shutter was of course the main reason for its rapid demise.

Also the fact that it was introduced during a period of economic austerity & was extremely expensive, particularly after WWII, when German imports were relatively cheap. Bell & Howell's Foton suffered a similar fate despite being very mechanically reliable.

The camera's shutter was of course the main reason for its rapid demise.
