    hi,

    My grandfather was very big into photogoraphy whem my mother was in highschool(20+years ago:lmao:) and today i asked him if he could give me his old 35mm camera which he would shoot with

    it is a fujica and he had 3 lenses, a 28mm, 55mm, and a 85-205mm.
    now the problem is that for the last 15 years moe or less, it was stored in his closet, and now the sensor i guess, has mold from the humidity, im assuming it is the sensor but i relly dont know, any way i was wondering what i can do about it, and if it is salvageable

    thanks:D

    I'm sure any reputable camera service store will give it a good cleaning, check or replace the seals, etc. Probably be good as new and give you years of perfect service for a small investment! Take the lenses in with the camera body. You should be in business inside of week or so. :thumbup:

    ok update on this

    i took it to a camera shop that another camera shop i go to reccomended to me for servicing this camera

    im just curious if this is a good price

    the seals on the camera were bad so they are being replaced, the light meter is being replaced also, it is getting a full cleaning

    they are charging me $90 (89 something to be exact)

    my grandfather relly wanted it to be useable for me, but i was just wondering if it was a good price?

    thanks

    Yep, sounds about right to me, too. It should perform beautifully for you for years now. :thumbup:
