Super 8 Camera Diagnostics Canon Cameras (Per Labor Hour - 1 Hour Minimum)
Wondering if your Canon Super 8 camera is in proper working condition? Send it in to Pro8mm, the world experts in service on select Canon Super 8 cameras and lens! We have over 40 years of extensive parts & knowledge. Our engineering R&D team can diagnose all the major functions of your camera to confirm its in working condition before your next big project.
$150 includes a one-hour evaluation and analysis of the cameras capacity to work. We will check and perform diagnostics of the 3 major functions of a working camera- Does it run? Does it focus? Does it transport film?
Once the diagnostics are performed, you will be given the following options:
1) The camera is functional, meaning it works! Many cameras have lens mold or slight inconsistencies in exposure. This will not stop you from getting images. Many times simple minor repairs to battery contacts lubrication or basic cleaning can get a camera back on its feet. In this state we call it functioning.
2) The camera needs repairs to function. You will be provided with a list of what services would be required, and the prices / hours to complete such services. Typically this consists of lens collimation, meter calibration, and other mechanical repairs. Cosmetically, the camera would remain as is(scratches, dents, etc.) Repair services are billed at $150 per hour and will only be done after your approval of the written estimate, they are not included in the analysis.
3) The camera is beyond economic repair. You will be given a price for parts if you wish to sell it to Pro8mm.
Evaluations take on average 2-3 weeks.
Diagnostics are without warranty. Any repairs are covered under our standard 90 day parts and labor warranty (excluding impact or water damage.)
