Chris Sherlock's repair service for Kodak Retina and Retinette cameras

All good things come to an end, or so they say anyhow. It is now finally time for me to retire from the camera repair trade, and I am no longer accepting any repair work, sorry.

Thank you for all your support over the years. I will continue with my camera repair videos on YouTube, but the pace at which I publish new videos will very likely decrease somewhat.

They do say 'The shoemaker's children go barefoot'. I have a large collection of cameras, and perhaps even the majority of them have never been serviced by me. I will work my way through some of them, and record the process. This should keep the flow of repair videos running for some time.

As for the repair of your Retina, I suggest you try contacting Paul Barden. He may be contacted at this address

Paul is a very competent Kodak Retina repair specialist. He is based in Oregon, in the United States. I expect this will make the challenges of shipping easier for many of you too, compared to sending cameras all the way to New Zealand.

Regards, Chris Sherlock
