    Can anyone recommend a good camera repairer?
    I live in Cleveland but I'd post my cameras away if necessary so they need not be too local. I have an EOS 20D which needs a good clean and possibly a replacement optical part or two and a quite old Nikon 35mm SLR which could do with the same.

    I'd be grateful for any recommendations.

    When I took an F2 to Grays of Westminster for a service a few years back - about 8 IIRC - they sent it to Malcolm Taylor. He's best known for servicing Leicas, but did a nice job IMHO.

    Worth a shot anyway.

    Should have added that if your Nikon is an electronic camera (as opposed to mechanical) then Malcolm is not an option.

    Yes the Nikon is electronic, thanks for the reply.

    I had my EOS10D focus adjusted by Lehmanns
    - it took about 3 hours, and they updated the firmware as well. (All personalisation, name etc., was lost as the settings were set to the factory defaults.) A repair to a lens took rather longer - several weeks. [They are Canon authorised.] I'd suggest emailing them first to get a quote.

    I've also had good repair service from Canon UK at Elstree.

    Thank you guys. The feedback is much appreciated. I'll see what I can sort out soon. Thanks again and have a nice weekend all.

    PS - I do not have good access to email but I've noted the phone numbers for each.

    Try Forresters in Halesowen,West Mids.Don't think digital is their bag of chips but for older stuff and proper full-on vintage they work wonders!

    They can be contacted on 0121 501 3301
