Frequently Asked Questions

Why does it take so long?

Sadly, camera repairmen are as rare as a unicorn riding a skateboard. We are doing our best to keep up with demand by training the new generation of camera technicians.

I'm in a hurry and need my gear back ASAP!

First of all, this is not a question.

There is a rush option available to skip the diagnostics queue. However, immediate fixability and the cost to repair may vary depending on the issue.

Can you fix my camera?

Generally, repairs are possible, but we need to check with a diagnostic first.

How will you contact me?

We like texting for communication, but email is totally fine too if that's your preference.

How cool is Alex?

Well, if its broken he will fix it. He does this partially by designing and manufacturing replacement parts.
