Fix Old Cameras on YouTube

Postby Captain Slack » Sun Dec 04, 2016 11:52 am

Recently found this great YouTube channel for repairing old cameras. It's called, appropriately enough, Fix Old Cameras.

I used one of their tutorials to unstick the aperture on a Canon 50mm/1.8 FD that I'd come into possession of. Was very easy, once I got the right tools!

Nice!

I bought a box of tools for fixing my cameras ten or fifteen years ago but have never really taken the time to start. These videos look like good, uhh, confidence-building measures. :)

These videos are very cool. I made this a sticky so it stays at the top of this forum category.
