Did you know that most of the early classic manual SLR cameras have all metal bodies, gears and levers. The newer autofocus SLRs are mostly plastic with very few metal parts. It is a fact that most of the classic all metal manual SLR cameras are going to out last the new autofocus SLRs even though some of them are already over thirty years old.

Most people have never seen the inside of a 35mm SLR camera. We thought they might enjoy seeing what the inside of their camera looks like. These gallery photos are from our Gold and Refurb service repairs. When you send in your camera under the Gold or Refurb service, you receive a mini CD with images of your camera in a disassembled state like the photos below.
