 Quality Film Cameras & Repairs

Fast turn around on repairs.
No Charge Estimates


Typical Film Camera Repair


Two days shipping priority mail, two days in house, two days shipping back.

Send me the camera and I will check it out. I then will let you know by email the repair cost.

Once we have agreed on a repair I will send you a paypal request for payment.

Once the paypal goes through it will ship back usually the next day.

 Paypal is the fastest way “almost instant" in most cases. You also can send a check or money order but with a check I will have to hold it for 1 week for it to clear.

My name is Joe Careta and  I have been a camera repairman since 1975, working in Boston MA. Stamford CT. Providence and Warwick R.I. and now in Englewood Florida

 From 1979 to 1992, I was a factory authorized Canon Repairman, with many factory training seminars, working at United Camera in Providence R.I.  From 1992 until 2004, I owned Camera Exchange & Service Center in the airport plaza in Warwick R.I. From 2004 until 2010 I worked out of my house in Exeter RI and now I am working out of my shop in Englewood Florida

 I buy non working cameras.

 Selling, and repairing mostly manual cameras, including Canon AE-1s and Canon AE-1 Programs, Canon AT-1s,  Minolta SRTs, and Pentax K1000 .


Please don't ask for help to repair your own camera: I will not help.

I do not sell camera parts.

I Do Not work on digital cameras

Right now I have many items in my ebay store


In the past 30 years, I have repaired many different types of cameras, including medium-format and large-format cameras. Now I prefer to work on quality manual 35mm and some medium-format cameras.
