Clean and Check=$30.00

A "Clean and Check", is a checking of shutter speeds, meter, flash sync and all operations of the camera. An external cleaning, including mirror and focusing screen "if user serviceable" and replacement of mirror and back door hinge foam. Keep in mind that a "Clean and Check" will not fix any problems. What it will do is tell what problems it has if any. If at that time you decide to get an overhaul you will not be charged for the clean and check.


I am pretty much just repairing Canon Cameras now but there are some exceptions, just ask.
