GREETINGS, CAMERA CLUB MEMBERS!
Throughout the 61 years of
our existence as a camera repair shop, we have been closely associated
with camera clubs from many areas, especially in New England.
Our shop founder, Gerald
(Jerry) Sanford, has started one club, is past president of two, and is
a Master Member of The New England Camera Club Council (MNEC).
When you enter our shop,
either personally, or by mail, your problem becomes our problem. Whether
you require only an operating change, or your camera or lens needs a repair,
we fully understand the unique conditions a camera club requires, and we
gladly give our time and expertise so you can produce prize-winning slides
When you tell us that your
lens is not sharp, that you cannot resolve the hairs on a caterpillar's
body, we know exactly what you mean, and, we have the knowledge as well
as the test equipment to check out that lens resolution, f -stop by f -stop.
We also check your camera's critical body focus points so we can give you
a complete answer. Of course, we are well equipped to repair the camera
body if it is needed. This one-on-one connection between photographer and
repair technician forms the basis for all our service work. We hope you
will take advantage of it.
If our shop is too distant
from you, we encourage you to ship your camera/lens to us for a prompt
estimate. We cherish our warm relationship with club members, and look
forward to this for the future!
Joining a local camera club
is a wonderful way to learn and enjoy photography! The cost is low,
and the fun is high! You meet so many people who, like you, want
to bring their cameras into action in a fulfilling way. There are
many fine camera clubs in the New England area, call us if you need more
