    I picked up a Mamiya rangefinder camera from the thrift store for $20. Everything works but the shutter sticks. I took apart a few things but didn't go too deep for fear of ruining it. I'd like to fix it myself and am looking for a decent book that has info on repairing cameras. Any advice?

    What is the model? I know that the med format Mamiyas are known for being extremely complicated. Guys who fix all sorts of other cameras won't touch them. I haven't got a book to recommend, but search the internet. Maybe you'll find a page that has the info, or can find someone who will sell you a factory repair manual on CD.

    Check ebay, I got the repair manual for my old Mamiya/Sekor there. Of course, I can't understand it so it didn't do me much good. :)

    It's an EE which is a 35mm rangefinder. I've searched the internet and ebay. I guess I'm just looking for a general camera repair book.
