Hello there, thanks for visiting my website. My
name is Alan and I am based in Shepperton,
(no parking restrictions incidentally should you wish to visit in person but please make an appointment first)
As you can see from the heading I have been running this business for 37 years now, before that I worked for KONICA cameras as a service technician and spares controller.
I pretty much only repair
So, dont take your cherished item to a large global superstore, come and chat to the guy who is actually going to repair the item for you. I pride myself on my personal service. Many customers become personal friends, what more can I say ..
Now tell me about the fault with your camera or lens . Its probably best to send me an e-mail or give me a call so that we can establish exactly what has gone wrong. In a lot of cases I can usually give some idea of the repair cost and availability of spare parts this way.
Many people ask me why do digital SLRs go wrong ? Surely there arent any moving parts inside ? Infact there are plenty of moving parts in them just like their film predecessors. A mirror still has to move up out of the way and they still have an electro-mechanical shutter that needs to be treated with care.
Modern day lenses have a lot of electronic circuitry inside them. They communicate with the camera body and between them they work out the best settings. Some also have Image Stabilisers (IS) and Silent Motors that need special micro computers to control them.
So to sum up, your modern day camera is a technological marvel. Treat it with respect and it will hopefully give you many years of service.

I recommend sending items to me using Royal Mail Special Delivery. The parcel is signed for, arrives next working day and is insured for up to £750 automatically. Wrap the item in bubble wrap and place it in a suitable card box. This is how I send my repairs back and so far I have not had any problems.
