The lens is the eye of any camera. Keeping them focussing properly, preventing aberrations and maintaining image sharpness is a specialist task.
Whenever you focus or zoom your camera lens, the moving and rotating internal parts put stress on the ribbon strips and electronic connectors within it. If these connections start to fail, the camera loses data. This leads to a loss of focus control or at worst complete failure.
However, at 1st Aid Repairs, we can repair or replace these connections and restore full functionality. Don't throw away a lens which isn't working properly, send it to us for a low priced inspection. We'll estimate the cost of repairs, and return the item if you don't want to go ahead.
For any lenses where an original replacement part is not available, we may be able to repair the existing connector.
We have an extensive stock of used and new parts. Allowing us to often find a replacement or adapt a newer part to provide the same functionality.
The inside of a camera lens contains many individual glass and plastic lenses. During assembly, they must be put together in an incredibly clean, static-free room. This ensures any dust is prevented from getting onto the internal parts.
With our cleanroom facility, combined with ionising, anti-static air guns, we are able to strip and clean lenses to the highest degree possible. Replicating the assembly environment whenever a lens is assembled is vital to its continued, fault-free operation.
If your lens has image aberrations or focus issues, we can disassemble, clean and service it thoroughly. As part of this service, we'll also let you know if there are any other issues which need addressing now or in the future.
Scrapes and scratches may not affect the performance of your camera lens, but they can still impact on how it feels to use your camera.
With our extensive stock of parts and our experienced technicians, we can restore your lens to its former glory.
We do offer Estimates suitable for Insurance purposes. We would require the lens 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 lens and report his findings. We will then email a PDF copy of the inspection report to you, which is suitable for insurance purposes.
