Do I Need My Sensor Cleaned?

Are My Pictures Always A Little Soft?


We clean, not only your sensor, but the mirrors, focus screen and viewfinder optics, and we do it WHILE YOU WAIT!

Are you finding your lenses don't focus on the spot you wanted in focus? You may need your lenses calibrated to your body. (Note: Only higher end cameras have the ability to AF Adjust the lenses.) We can calibrate your lenses WHILE YOU WAIT. No more doubting yourself with slightly soft pictures.

Repair ~ Don't Replace! Going Green

Have you noticed the price of cameras dropping? How do you think they can cut the prices? They make the cameras cheaper. By upgrading to that new camera, you may be actually buying a camera that is not as well built as the one you currently own. So, if you have a camera that you know how to operate and don't want to have to learn a new camera, then you may want to consider repairing it rather than replacing it. By repairing your camera, you are keeping one more camera from going to the landfill. Northwest Camera is the Twin Cities only digital camera repair shop. We repair most makes and models of digital cameras as well as film cameras.

Not in the Twin Cities? Northwest Camera Repair accepts cameras shipped to us for repair also. See our Shipping Info page.
