Hi,

I got a 20 years old Minolta XG1 that needs servicing and cleaning as there is some dirt on the mirror. Also, the lens got fungus grown on it and the turning is a bit stiff too. Should I send them back to Minolta Service Center to do the servicing/cleaning? Or is it better that I just bring them to any of the outside camera service shops? Any recommendation? And roughly how much will that cost? :think:

Hi,

Thanks for the recommendation. Will bring my camera down to let him have a look on the condition... BTW, do they open on Sunday? :lovegrin:

You can try P&G Photographic Centre at The Adephi, Basement. I've sent a few items for repair/maintainance and found it great. :)
