For those who already own equipment, Spectra Film and Video offers the same quality repair and
reconditioning service as is performed on the items we sell. Nearly every make and model can be worked on
to an extent. We have an inventory of parts as well as a machine shop to allow us to make additional parts that
are not readily available. All repaired items will come with a qualified 30 day warranty on repairs performed.
Camera repair or basic maintenance will usually run $200.00 - 400.00 or more. Please take this into
consideration when sending in a camera for estimation. Be sure to take the time to evaluate its true worth and
replacement cost first before sending items in.
We are currently experiencing repair delays due to demand. A delay of a few weeks or more is not
uncommon. Do not send in any equipment that is quickly needed for a time sensitive project. We will not be
responsible for missing deadlines.
To have your equipment estimated for repair, first give us a call to discuss the make and model. Once we give
you the go-ahead, simply send it in with a description of the problem, return address, phone number, and a
$40.00 non-refundable estimate fee. Do not include unrelated items such as camera case, box, filter key, lens
adapters, film or any other items that might get separated.
The $40.00 non-refundable estimation fee will be applied to tech service for equipment disassembly,
evaluation and testing for a basic report. The estimate fee must be paid to cover these evaluation costs
whether or not we are able to service your equipment. Should you accept our estimate for repair, we will apply
the entire estimate fee as credit towards your repair cost! Items with estimate refusals or considered
unrepairable will be reassembled (as it was) and sent back for an additional shipping charge (small cameras
are usually about $20.00 - 30.00 for domestic FedEx ground). Any items not in the process of undergoing
estimate or repair service that are left at our facility over 60 days will be considered abandoned and discarded.
All equipment requiring repair estimates should be sent to the following address:

16mm Repair Specialist: Bernie repairs and
upgrades just about any make of 16mm camera
including Krasnogorsk, Canon, Arri, Aaton, Bolex,
Mitchell, Eclair, Beaulieu and more. He offers some
of the best quality and pricing we have found in the
USA. Enhancing viewfinder brightness with
Laserbrighten process, and super 16 conversions
are available. However, we suggest avoiding Ultra
16 conversions due to an overall lack of processing
and scanning compatibility. Go super 16 instead!
Highly recommended! A free color and
exposure correction software that allows for
work on rough HD one-light scans from a home
computer! Commonly used by the industry
pro's. Be aware that some practice and time
will be needed to do a reasonable job.
Currently the most popular editing software.
This is the most intuitive and easiest to use for
beginners and professionals. However, there is
a minimum 20.00 ongoing monthly fee as part of
an annual plan. Be sure to have some projects
lined up to take advantage of this.
Once the most popular, Apple decided to dumb
down this software as Final Cut Pro X. As a
result it has fallen out of favor (although it can
easily handle the basics). The good news is
that it can be purchased outright for only
around 300.00! No monthly fees! Not bad!
