Default Hi from Canada!

Hi I'm Peter just about to move to France from Canada. Before that I lived in the Yorkshire dales for 15 or so years, so still not a local yet!
Never really got into digital, just been given a canon eos d5 mk 1, but it's a paper weight! All the old film cameras people give me here I CLA them and they work fine. Strange as a student how i wanted all the cameras I can now buy cheap on eBay. Back in the day I could not afford them. Now a canon f1 or most of the minolta SRT and XE range are within ones price range. They still take really good photos. Check out www.monoart.tk to view a small amount of my work.
If anyone wants any light seals or CLA on a camera you bought on eBay and are too afraid to open it up then email me.
I have repaired to full working order, a Minolta A5, fujica rapid D1, Voigtlander vito, the pad of death on all yashicas. a ciro-flex TLR model d, and many more. When I get time I will do a blog on a camera what needed repairing and some actual photos from it.
Might be off the net while traveling to France on the 22nd
Hope to be of help to other users and pick up some darkroom tips.
I have a Saunders 4500, 5x4 enlarger with no neg carriers and power supply, does anyone have a scrap one for parts?
Regards
Peter
