    Bay Area - Large Format Lens Repair

    Can anyone point me to a reputable lens repair shop in the Bay Area?
    In need of a cable release trigger for a Rodenstock HR Digaron W 5.6/70...I've worn mine out.
    I can replace it myself, but need to find the part and don't really have a clue where to find one.
    Thanks!

    You need shutter repair, not lens repair.

    You need the cable release socket for a Copal 0 shutter. Any camera service center will have it or can order it for you. If you are not sure who to ask check with any local camera store.

    I honestly think this is a bit of a longshot, but call Matt @ Glass Key Photo and ask him. If he doesn't have the parts or can't order, I feel close to certain that he could point you in the right direction.

    Matt is an awesome guy and his shop is great (or at least it was while they were still located in the Lower Haight) - have not been to the new location.

    And obviously nowhere near the Bay Area, but if completely stuck, you can always reach out to SKGrimes - http://www.skgrimes.com/services

    The new store is nice, in an equally flavorful location. Love those guys...
