There’s still a great place in the market for medium format cameras. Whether they are film or digital cameras, keeping them in top condition is key to ensuring you continue to get years of great service.
At 1st Aid Repairs, we can clean and service your camera, as well as repair damaged bodies, film backs and finders. All thanks to the in-depth experience of our technicians.
For older cameras, we also have an extensive stock of parts and used cameras we can use to keep your medium format camera working.
If your camera stops working due to a fault or an accident, we can help. Our modern cleanroom facility, air-flowing solder systems and experienced technicians allow us to identify faults at a component level. It is often possible for us to repair sockets and individual components, rather than having to go to the cost of replacing a whole circuit board.
We can offer repairs for many film and digital medium format cameras, including:
If new parts are no longer available, we have an extensive stock of older and used parts and cameras that can be used to help get you back up and working again.
Our quotes for repairing your camera will include any parts required and include VAT.
Keeping your camera working at its best means keeping it clean. Over time, dirt and metal shavings from lens changes get into the camera body and start to affect performance. Static electricity can also build up within the shutter mechanism which attracts more dust onto the components and film.
Our quotes for cleaning and servicing your camera will include any minor parts required and include VAT.

Whilst we aim to return most cameras within 14 days, there are times where high demand may delay this to 28 days or more, especially if we need to order in parts. Rest assured, we always try to return your pride and joy back to you as quickly as possible, without compromising our high servicing and repair standards.
We do offer Estimates suitable for Insurance purposes. We would require the camera for inspection and confirmation of the damage.
Inspection reports are chargeable, which would be deducted from the final repair cost should the repair be completed. The inspection fee must be paid before the inspection and covers the return carriage to you if the estimate is declined.
During the inspection, the Technician will inspect the camera and report his findings. We will then email a PDF copy of the inspection report to you, which is suitable for insurance purposes.
