thinking of sending in my old ricoh SLR for general servicing, & was quoted ard $80 by one of the shops in peninsula...
the camera actually still works & i've recently completed a test roll of film on it..
all seem well, but the shutter's a little erratic & prone to jamming.. the lens focus ring's also pretty stiff..
also, somewhere along the line in the viewfinder system, it's pretty dirty and very visible thru the viewfinder.. but spots didnt get transferred to the processed photos.. so prob the lens' not affected..
however, looking closely at the lens, i can see white hair-like strains of stuff.. not sure if it's fungus..
not sure what to look out for when it comes to servicing, but would it address the aforementioned issues? would like to hear opinions if sending it in is recommended, for the price quoted.
