View Full Version : Camera Repair Suggestion for G690

19-Dec-2011, 17:18

I already contacted Carol at Flutot's about this, she told me she didn't work on cameras.

So, who's next in line for repairing a Fujica G690 rangefinder?

I've heard ok things about Precision Camera Works in Illinois.

Who else?

Basically, there's a lag between hitting shutter release and the shutter firing. 2nd issue is that the film doesn't advance properly... probably a stripped gear inside.

40 years in the biz, close relationship with Fujifilm

For me....has done:
three bellows on GS645
Lcd on GA645Zi
a number of CLAs on the big rangefinders... G690, G690bl, GL690 all interchangeable lens bodies.
revived a meter for me on the AE100 metered lens

always prompt except for one of the bellows when he had a hard time finding a new bellows supplier for the GS645. Has an upgrade for the bad shutter linkage on the GS645.

I have not considered anyone but Frank for any of my Fuji's for a number of years.

One note on Frank... Don't look for a web site and don't waste your time on email.

Frank is Old School. He'll actually talk with you on the telephone, and that's about it. I get along with him really well, and he get's the cameras done for me.

Frank Marshman is the expert, no question, honest, prompt, reasonable.

Bob at Precision Camera Works is great for higher end large format gear, customization, more sophisticated and expensive stuff.
