digital cameras

Over the past few years, digital cameras have become the “camera of choice” for many photographers, from the point-and-shoot crowd to the professional photographer. They offer the immediate confirmation of being able to see your photographs on an LCD screen as soon as they are taken and the ability to capture images to a virtually “cost-free” film that can be erased and used again and again.

Because recording an image on a memory card is more difficult than just exposing a piece of film to light, digital cameras rely much more heavily upon electronics than film cameras. In addition, digital cameras are built more compactly than film cameras making disassembly and repair more difficult. Because of this, dual eyepiece microscopes are becoming common in many camera repair shops due to the extremely tiny size of many components.

Many manufacturers have resorted to replacing expensive major subassemblies to perform repairs on their cameras. We have found that many repairs are possible at the component level, thus saving the cost of those major parts.

repair procedures

When we repair your digital camera, we fully test all the functions according to the manufacturer's testing specifications. We have on hand all the different types of memory cards and most types of power supply adaptors to test with. Because of this, we are able to put our full 6 month warranty on the repair.

In instances of simple minor parts replacements, such as battery doors or lens covers, we will still check out the entire camera, but only charge for and guarantee the specific repair. That way we don't have to charge over $100 to replace the battery door on your camera as some manufacturer's service departments do.

Use our Repair Request Form for information concerning specific repair-related questions you may have.

You may also ship equipment to us for a complete FREE repair inspection. We receive daily deliveries from USPS, FedEx, and UPS. See our Shipping Info page for detailed instructions and a pre-formatted shipping label.

Is DIGITAL the way to go? Should I dump my film camera?


The most important part of the answer is, “How much do I have invested in my current camera if I switch over to digital?” If you are starting fresh, digital is probably the way to go, for the advantages mentioned at the top of this page. If you have money invested in SLR lenses, you may be able to use these lenses on a new digital SLR body made by the same manufacturer!
