My father gave me a old MF Rollei a few years ago. I've taken it everywhere I travel and gotten some great shots out of it. I know film is much more expensive and quickly going out of "style" as the digital revolution pushes on. (I'm not a Luddite as i shoot more on my DC than on film)
On my last trip to London the shutter locked up. I called around London to see if I could have it repaired and ended up not having it repaired in the UK but waited until I brought it back home.
One of the camera repair shops i spoke with in London told me that finding someone to fix your Rollei is like finding a good car mechanic. If you find a good one stick with them as they will repair things the RIGHT way and not the cheap/fast way. I was told by my local repair guy that the camera had previously been fixed and it was not done correctly. It's not that I don't trust the local camera guy. I just think this camera is so far out of his normal repairs that it should be sent to a real expert.
Has anyone ever sent their cameras out for repair and had excellent service? If so, where is the best place to get my beloved Rollei serviced?
