    I'm not sure if this goes here, but here it goes anyway...

    My boyfriend has this old Wirgin Anastigmat camera and I think the shutter may be broken, but I know that it needs to be repaired. Does anybody have any idea where I could get it fixed? I live in the greater Los Angeles area and a place is So. Cal would be great. I was hoping to get it repaired for him as a gift as his birthday is coming up. All help is greatly appreciated! :)

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the cost of shutter repair would probably exceed the value of the camera.

    Max is right, it'll take you more to fix the Wirgin than get another working camera. That is unless the Wirgin has some sentimental value to your boyfriend.

    Meanwhile welcome aboard.

    It's actually his grandfather's camera. Oh, well. I'll try to see what I can do.

    Thanks for the welcome!
