Do you know anyone, in addition to Retro8 in Japan, who repairs or make overhaul on Fujica ZC1000?
Thank you!

Try to ask Aperture in London (http://apertureuk.com/). I know they have in-house repair service for film cameras and lenses so it's written in their website. I don't think they repair 8/16mm and such, but I’m sure if you write them they’ll know where to address you.

Thank you, Stefano, I'll inform with mail.
I already have a camera in assistance, I wait for that to come back to me and
I'll do it.

I also have a Fujica ZC1000 in need of repair. Besides Retro8, does Duall Camera do work on Fujica Single-8 cameras? Also, what about Fujica Single-8 repair shops in the U.S.?

I had http://microdeltabalears.com recommended to me, they are based in Mallorca, Spain. I was going to send them my ZC1000 to be serviced as they have a very good reputation, although I haven't gotten around to doing it yet!

They can't know they need a particular part until they've checked the camera. Then it may take a while for them to try to find it. After all these cameras are decades old.

In this case , I told them the camera had a problem with the motor & would need a new one !

Many email & yes send the camera should be able to fix  85% chance can fix ! outcome was no motor & hard to find   .

Leicina speical had a holiday in Spain with no repair with a wait of 6 months .

Thank you, Andries. I will definitely go to Click und Sur in the future should I venture back to Super 8 filmmaking. My ZC1000 is currently with the seller, a well-known NYC camera house, but they may not be able to do anything with it. If I do get my camera back from them, I will send it to Click und Sur. Apparently, Retro8 has no interest in repairing this camera, either.
