    I'm a bit confused..

    Recently I brought my Nikon ELW to Nikon Canada here in Richmond BC to have it serviced (replace seal clean etc).There answer was sorry Sir but we can not perform that task on your camera reason being we don't carry these parts anymore for this camera.
    Does anyone know a place that would service my cameras in Vancouver Canada?

    Confused and bitter...I have spent a sickening amount of money at Nikon and this is how they treat me?

    They can't create parts forever... but, it's likely cheaper to buy a new one then to have it serviced. Nikon film cameras are really cheap these days on fleabay.

    I doubt Ford carries parts for a 72 Mustang...can you blame them?

    There is (was) an place in Downtown Vancouver that was full of old camera gear. I think they do repair/service...if they can find the parts of course. I can't think of the name, or even the street (Hastings maybe) but I can picture it in my mind.

    If you are willing to ship, there is a place here in Edmonton that does repair & service on all sorts of old cameras. Classic Camera Exchange.
