My Beaulieu R16 needs refurbishing. Does anyone know of a decent repair center (preferably in Canada, where I live) or in North America?

TIA

We will be glad to provide you with a free estimate for both your camera and lens. Canada is just up the street here in upstate New York. We can see the Toronto buildings.....shut up Bernie....you're beginning to sound like someone we all know......

Good stuff. Bernie, we have bookmarked your website for future reference. We'll be getting in touch, if no Canadian sources show up!

Be careful now... someone we know has a shrine set up in their living room to "someone we all know". :P

Sigh...

Our Beaulieu R16, which we won on eBay finally showed up today. Boy is it ever in rough shape! Looks like that old addage... "Been rode hard and put away wet". I'll say!!! Both the camera body and the lens look beat up and in sore need of TLC and major restoration.

I have pictures, but at the size I'd want to display them here, the abuse would not be very evident. I'm not going to display them normal size as that would be a massive waste of bandwidth.

We'll be talking to Jean-Louis Seguin who works on this gear professionally in Montreal, and see what he says. Beside Bernie's contact info, I have a few other camera and lens repair places filed and will be talking to them.

Next up... getting my new Arri's checked out! (Over to the Arri forum we go...)
