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.
