    Default Camera Servicing & Repair

    I have recently managed to "inherit" a SLR and some equipment
    and i need to send it for servicing. Would it be better to send it down to the main Nikon repair centre @ Leng Kee Road?

    Or would places like John 3:16, CP or AP do a good job @ a better price?

    Kindly advise?

    1. Nikon F-601 (Looks mouldy and the mirror refuses to pop back down)

    2. Nikkor 35-70mm (Looks mouldy)

    3. Sigma 70-210mm (Looks mouldy)

    4. Nikon Speed light SB-24 (Flash) (In working order. Does flashguns need to be serviced?)

    If anyone has encountered the same problem before or had the same types of servicing and repairs carried, how much did it cost you? I need to get a rough gauge.

    Thank you.

    Kindly advise & enlighten.

    Prime, the 2nd hand shop beside CP, i'm not sure if they still provide cleaning and repairing service now. they use to provide cleaning and repairing when they haven't move over to Peni. Plaza. you may want to try there....

    Cheer...

    can try camera workshop @ peninsula shopping centre (across the road from cathay photo @ peninsula plaza (or issit the other way round... i always mix up "plaza" with "shopping center"...) anyway look for Ruby Photo, and the Camera Workshop is diagonally opposite it. can just bring it in to them for a quote first... your Nikkor and Sigma lens servicing might cost more than the lens itself, depending on how bad the mold is...

    Will they also clean an old camera like the Mamiya ZE+Mamiya-Sekkor f/2.0 50mm? For how much, usually?

    TIA

    Send to Nikon S'pore for a qoute and then compare with what TCW and others offer. I prefer Nikon S'pore as they are reputable and will have all genuine parts.
