    Repair for a SEIKO shutter.

    Do you know of a repair man or a repair shop that can repair a Seiko Shutter preferably in Europe?

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Re: Repair for a SEIKO shutter.

    Some shops will claim they're unrepairable, but I had one worked on by ICT Camera in Mountain View, CA.

    http://www.ictcamera.com/

    Yes, I know it's not in Europe, but Manfred is European-trained. From what he described to me of the work it was well beyond a standard CLA, but the price was quite reasonable.

    There are also the usual US-based suspects - S.K. Grimes, CameraWiz (no email, let me know if you need to reach him), Flutot's (long wait usually), Paul Ebel, probably others. Sorry I can't help with European sources.

    What's the problem you need repaired?

    The slow shutter speeds are too slow and cocking takes force.

    If you don't find any in Europe, and don't mind sending it to Canada, I would suggest Roger at Camtech in Hamilton, Ontario.

    He has repaired Seiko shutters for me before and always did a great job; highly recommended.

    Mine had the same issues, I repaired it myself. It was not difficult. Anyone who works on shutters should have no trouble making it good as new.

    Thanks for plugging Roger at Camtech (camtechphoto.com) Ari. I also use him for my repairs, and he does quality work for fair prices.
