T90 service/cla

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

Since Canon no longer supports this camera, I remember a post detailing a list of repair sites but can't find it again.

Would appreciate any input.

thx in advance

Mark, http://www.kjsl.com/canon-fd/cameras/ I think it appears in the end of the article on the T90 at the above link, which is part of these pages. I just bought a T90 off of ebay without a manual , so I have had to rely on this article to figure out all the controls and how to use it. I think some repair info is at end of article. Let me know how you make out and if you find a place that does repairs , as I may find myself in a similar situation in the future. Regards, Tom.

More T-90 info is available at "http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/canont90/inde x.htm"

They also have the F-1N manual online.

Well and good for the leads you mentioned, but such things get stale fast. I saw a *recent* posting elsewhere asserting a "Japan Camera of Norcross, Georgia" (no contact info provided), a shop that allegedly takes them in and does major stuff such as shutter magnets..can't verify that..can anyone?.. Another possibility is Glazer's Camera Supply of Seattle. The latter has a web site, but it seems to be temporarily messed up with HTML script drooling all over. (glazerscamera.com), but also- luckily- has a toll free number. Ma Bell to the rescue... Glazer was once on a list of pro shops put out by Canon USA for their professional CPS members. You might call 1-888-531-3232 at Glazer's for the hell of it. Bill Bergner aka "Mr.Canon" might give you some ideas. I have had no personal dealings with either of these two outfits. (My gut says Glazer's ought to know Canon manual cameras)... It would be a great service to humanity/at least Canon FD users, if someone posted current,USA, within the last year current, report on who has done T-90 work and how to reach 'em. Not lithium battery replacement, but rather the full array of work on the camera body. Must be a Best in the West T-90 Doctor out there hiding. Anybody?
