    Who is now servicing Cambo gear in the USA?

    Now that Calumet is out of business here in the US, who is going to repair Cambo gear?

    I have a 4x5 rotating back that is loose and needs to be tightened up. I'm not sure if there is enough play in the back, but I am worried about my sheet film holders not being in the focal plane.

    A friend loaned me his while I get mine serviced but I don't know where to send it.

    BTW, will any company be selling new Cambo gear here in the USA?

    Thanks,
    Terry

    Terry,
    Have you asked your local repairman if they can do the repair?
    Buying another used on e**y might be cheaper in the end, when you consider shipping(potentially to Europe, since Cambo is in The Netherlands) if it were to go back to the factory...

    You can always try a repair shop that's broadly experienced in LF gear, like Bob Watkins (Precision Camera Works).

    Cambo has a list of current US dealers -

    - but I suspect these dealers will be focused pretty much exclusively on Cambo's digital stuff. Anyway, you can find out for sure with a phone call.
