Post CLA Recommendations

Hello, Friends! I have a Rollei 35 that is in need of a CLA. Any recommendations on where I should send it? I'm located in Atlantic Canada but will ship anywhere in the USA or Canada (preferable). I've been told that Krimar Photo does an excellent job. Any direction would be appreciated!

People have said here recently that Krimar's website is down -- I don't know what that means. But when I have used him, he definitely prefers communicating by telephone. So I would not necessarily assume he is no longer working based on the website.

I have used Krikor several times (not in the past few years) and always was pleased with his work, including on a 35SE. And his work is stunningly fast. But you will find decidedly mixed opinions of his work here, so proceed with caution. Search RfF for Rolleiflex repairs and you will find those opinions. He may just be slowing down -- he is getting up there in age.

Finally, someone replies to this thread haha! I was beginning to think that I was the only one around

I found his number on Yelp and will give him a call later today. Thanks!

Oceanside Camera- Harry Fleenor- is another Rollei guy. I think he works on the model you have. Drop him an email (he does respond).

I will be very interested to hear how it goes with Krikor. I've been to his store a couple of times; nice man but he has to retire some time! Nonetheless, I hope he's well and still in business.
