Garry did an excellent job repairing my Canon AE- 1 Program's shutter squeak and light leak. The turnaround time was way faster than expected and the communication with Garry has been very efficient and helpful. I would recommend his service to any friend

Just got my Canon A1 back from Garry's. This is my second Canon repaired by him. If he is not the best in the business I don't know who is. This is the the way a business should be run - the old fashioned way. Get it done the right way the first time.

I had my Nikon FE2 repair by Garry's Camera. The price to repair the camera was very reasonable and from start to finish Mr. Airapetov was clear in communication and a consummate professional. My camera came back very clean and well packaged and in great working order. The camera was repaired and return shipped back to me within 1 month. I would not hesitate to send a camera to Garry's Camera in the future and I am please with the results.

I recently had a camera repaired with you and had received it in the mail a few weeks ago. I wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for the service you have performed on my camera. The camera looks and operates like new, I am amazed!

I sent my camera to two professional repair facilities. Took over a month for them to say "Unrepairable". You took care of it in less than a week.

This morning I received my SRT-102 in the mail from Garry's Camera Repair.  The camera looks great and works perfectly.  Garry had repaired the film counter, repaired the advance mechanism, performed a complete CLA and overhaul including shutter unit lubricated and adjusted, cleaned release magnet, run time speed adjusted, lubricated winding mechanism, calibrated, exposure adjusted, replaced light seals, replaced mirror cushion, cleaned viewfinder/prism and cleaned externally/internally.  His total repair cost was $45 plus $8 shipping.  I am very impressed with his work and highly recommend his services.  He's truly a professional that takes pride in his work.

All I can say to Garry and his staff is thank you, thanks you, thank you. I sent him my X-570 that was locked up. They fixed the problem, did a complete CLA and got it back to me in 7 days. If you're looking for someone to fix your classic, look no further.

What a great deal! I sent in my Minolta X-700 and Multi-Function Back for service and I was amazed when it returned to me a week later. Now, thanks to Garry's, it's flawless. No more sticky shutter, no more light leaks, no more underexposed photos. And to think, all of this for half of what others charge.

I just received my Minolta X-570 from having Garry's repair it after it totally locked up on me. All I can say is WOW. It was out of my hands for just over a week. The turnaround time was incredible and the camera looks brand new. I can't thank you guys enough for taking care of my camera. There are more on the way and I'll never go anywhere else. Your service greatly exceeded my expectations. Thank you.

I sent my Canon AE-1 Program to Garry's with shutter squeak and slow shutter speeds and he fixed it up good as new in just about a week. I heartily recommend Garry's Camera Repair.

My Canon A-1 that you repaired a few weeks ago works just like it did 25 years ago when I bought it new. Exposure is right on the money, no more shutter squeak and the new seals look just like factory. Thanks for the great job and quick turnaround.

My recently purchased Canon A1 abruptly quit after just one roll of film. Most repair shops I spoke with said it would be expensive and impractical to repair. Since I had nothing to lose, I first e-mailed Garry explaining the problem and then shipped the camera. I received it back in under two weeks and it works perfectly! Garry's has amazing service, excellent communication, and I'd recommend them to anyone I know who owns a classic camera.

I purchased an X-700 on eBay at a very reasonable price and when I received it the shutter began to stick. After seeing Garry's Camera recommended on a web site and his charge was reasonable especially compared to Wolf camera who wanted a $140.00 right off the bet. I received my my camera in the time promised and I'm surprised and satisfied with the service and my X-700 which I love. Thanks Garry.

I sent my X-700 for repair because the electronics went dead. I was skeptical of Garry's low prices, but figured as I wasn't going to pay $100.00 to repair it I'd only be risking $40.00. I got the camera back in perfect working order a week later, so I'm a very happy customer.

Great service. Thanks Garry. My 25 year old Canon AE-1 is like new again, viewfinder is clear and calibrated. The shipping took took awhile, but no fault to Garry. The USPS just took awhile for my camera to arrive. Next time around I'm requesting to ship it back to me FedEx 2nd day service or USPS Priority instead of Parcel shipping.

I bought a Canon AE-1 on eBay. When it arrived, it was in pretty bad shape. Bad seals, loose lens mount, sticking shutter etc. I sent it to Garry's to be fixed up. I received it back in on the day they said it would be here!! I have shot a roll of film with it and it works GREAT!!! Good service, fast turnaround, good price...what more could you ask for?

Outstanding service. I sent my Canon AE-1 for repair and general tune up. The camera is like new again. The service was extremely fast as well, had the camera back and the cost of repair was well below that of any other repairman I looked into. I am getting ready to send my other AE-1.
