    Does anyone know of the best place to get a camera repaired. I found an old Kodak Retinette IB today and it seems to be in pretty good working order apart from the viewfinder seems to have fallen apart and dropped inside the housing. I'd quite like to get it fixed and see if I can have a working camera at the end of it all.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: Here's a pic of the camera:

    It should be pretty easy to sort out - whereabouts are you in Kent?

    I hope so Rob, well it depends. At the moment I'm in Tunbridge Wells but i'm the process of moving out of home to my flat in Harrow. So I spend a fair bit of time in both locations at the moment.

    I don't know anywhere in Harrow but there's a place in Luton. So if you don't mind a 40min drive up the M1 it may be what you're looking for.

    As it happens I'm going to be in Luton on the 30th to take photos for the council at the carnival so if you could give me an address I'd be interested in checking this place out Ant.

    No problem. I'll check them out first as I know they do Olympus stuff and I'll find out if they'll do a Kodak too. I'll let you know tomorrow.

    Hi Scurra

    They were closed last night when I got back from work. But you can ring them on: 01582 458323. As I said, I know they specialise in Olympus repairs but I think they'll do other stuff too.

    Here's directions to find them

    EDIT: I've just checked out their main web site and they claim that they'll repair any make of camera. :)
