CLAing a Canon 7 in Europe?

Hi!

My Canon 7 needs an overhaul: the shutter is a bit sticky at slow speeds (>1/15) and I still have not succeeded in finding/making an appropriate tool for realigning the RF. Does anyone know of/or can recommend a camera repair person, preferably in Germany but anyplace inside the EU is fine?

/Anders

I don't know about Germany but CRR in Luton will service Canon RFs and another good repairer at very reasonable cost is Michael Spencer. http://www.btinternet.com/~camerarepairer/

Thanks Kim!

I'll send Michael Spencer an e-mail and see what he says.

But Leica can't be the only RF repairer in Germany, can they? Anyone?

You could ask Kunee Instruments in the Netherlands. I'm very happy with how they serviced my Yashicamat. You can choose your language (also German) in the top left corner of their site. http://www.kunee-instruments.nl/

Thanks Jeroen!

That is also an attractive alternative, and even better their page was available in English (my German is still fairly weak).

Anymore places/recommendations?

Cheers,

Anders

Hi Anders,

I was also looking for someone in Germany to do a CLA for my recently bought old RFs. After same time searching the Net I found this address which I can really recommend (BTW, I don't have any business related connections them):

Dimas-Fototechnik

They did a tremendous work on my Olympus 35 SP! I was really blown away the first time I looked through the fresh cleaned finder which had been very cloudy!

The prices including the shipping are very reasonable and they answer quickly and friendly any email from you.

In the next week I will send them my Black Canonet G3 QL17, Olympus XA and Yashica 35 GSN for a CLA.

Michael Spencer did a great job on both a 35SP and a 35RD for me and he is in the UK.

Thank you femto!

I've sent them an email! It would be great to have my 7 back in fully working order, though at the moment I fully enjoy my recent Zorki 1 and yesterday I developed my first B/W film since last summer. My first film ever in Calbe R09/(~Rodinal). It came out a bit thin (Tri-X [email protected], 1+50 for 22 minutes) but otherwise it looked fine. I should have made sure the lightmeter had fresh batteries, I guess.

As far as I remember they are related to each other but split up their business some years ago. So in fact these are two different repair shops now.

Hi,

I am sure www.weitwinkel.de is Markus Diringer, who is the mechanic of my trust, and the other shop belongs to A. Diringer, whom I do not know from experience.

Cheers

ah, Thomas-Michael,

you are right!

I didn't notice the different first names!

the Olympus 35 SP which did get the CLA from Andreas Diringer is my first old RF, so I can't compare it to another one, but IMHO the CLA was well done!
