We do this because we like to see and hear these old gems running quietly, producing pictures that are fun to look at.All of the Cameras are over 40 years old and deserve to be cared for by someone who loves making things work properly.
This business was formed many years ago when the need arose at Spectra Film and Video to help their customers with problems they were having with their cameras. In the infancy of the business there was time to look after the repairs. As time went by and Spectra grew, moving to the current location, There was not enough time for Spectra people to continue watching over the project. In June of 2012 it was decided that I would take the repair business separate and in so doing, relieve the extra stress and time requirements from the Spectra Staff. We are still in the Spectra facility but the repair calls and communications come directly to me reducing the workload for them.
I am Steve Willard, a veteran of over 45 years in the photographic and electronics industries. I have been designing, building, installing, maintaining and using photographic devices and the things that support their use all of my professional life. I have built and maintained hardware and software on hundreds of different devices in several different industries. My resume looks ridiculous it has so many different things on it. Now I am happy to fix your cameras and collaborate with guys who are smarter than me. It is all great fun!!
