Hello,

I have not come across many Super8 camera repairers, but I have two links for you:

http://www.camerache.../8mm-movie.html
http://www.duallcamera.com/

If you are confident, there are a couple of websites that cover D.I.Y repairs:

canon-s8-repair.yolasite.com
http://www.nakanocam.com/index.html

Although, try shooting a roll as a test, some cartridges are bad(rarely)

Good luck, and if you find a good repairer please let us know,

cheers

If it must be in driving distance I don't know of any addresses.
IF USA or East-Cost is your 'region' :) then http://www.super16inc.com/
should be a good address.

Good luck.

Sarah,

There are several around on the East Coast and I can unequivocally (that's a big word AJ - Go look it up) recommend Bernie at Super16inc. He's a stand up guy providing great Super8 and 16mm camera service. Tell Julie I said Hi!
