I’m fluent in English. Business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to noon, 1 pm to 5 pm.

Film motion-picture equipment is repaired and kept in shape here. I service purely mechanical cameras, optics, printers, projectors, and accessories.

No Super-16 conversions done here. No converted equipment accepted since November 1st, 2021. Too many cameras got ruined, the flange-focal distance insecure, aperture dimensions off, film guidance worsened, and other problems introduced. Never-ending stories

To revive your gear

Every object on my bench gets thoroughly inspected. I can give an item a general overhaul or only check out its functions.

I am equipped with the necessary tools. The basic procedures, however, are quite simple.

The photograph shows parts of an EMEL camera’s take-up spindle sitting in a solvent. From experience I prefer to clean mechanical elements by hand to an ultrasonic bath. Scrupulous inspection during the brushing-off reveals every defect.

Familiar with spiral springs

Backed with the know-how and the tools I can handle these mechanical energy accumulators. Shown here is a spring of a Specto 88 camera.

In case you feel something should be done in favour of the mechanism or the optics I can take care of your gear. It may be an accessory such as a splicer or a titler as well.
