I'm Sick to my Stomach

I just converted my Fuji GS645S into a paperweight today. I want to throw up.

Does Fuji in NJ still do repairs on these cameras ? I busted a pin in the shutter which stops the outer camera ring from turning. I was trying to unscrew the front camera ring bezel, like ALL of my other successful camera repairs. FML.

Pain, but probably worth repairing.

I’m pretty sure Midwest Camera Repair handles the Fuji’s.

Thanks for the links.. ! I appreciate it. This camera and it's lens are just THE best lens. The lens is about as clear as the Hasselblad lenses. In fact it might beat it. I'm still sitting here feeling ill. lol. I just got back from DC shooting the city with this camera. Not sure I should develop because it will make it worse..

Commiserations. Sounds an easy repair for an expert. In six months the disaster and the cost of repair, likely cheaper than you think, will be forgotten.

I feel your pain.
Last year I closed the case of my Minolta Autocord without moving the focus lever to the side.... SNAP!!
I almost cried. Eyes were moist.
Too embarrassed to send it in to Karl Bryan. I really should though, it's a lovely camera.
