    Luton Camera Repair Services - HOORAY!

    Hi There.
    It turned out that my black OMD . . . (which I slammed onto a rock in Crete with all my weight slipping down some scree) had a problem working with the grip (sometimes it did, sometimes it didn't). It worked perfectly for the rest of my holiday - this was a major fall, and something of a miracle that the camera survived at all. . . . anyway, this was hardly a warranty issue!

    So I sent it to Luton camera repair services

    They completely replaced (the rather scratched but otherwise okay) base plate and battery door - they also fitted a new eypiece cup (mine was lost) and checked, calibrated the camera and updated the firmware.

    The camera came back today looking almost like new - and working perfectly. It arrived in a rather nice Olympus tin.

    The price was 140 for the whole thing (including postage etc.). They answer the phone, they answer emails, and they are accredited warranty repairers as well.

    I'm very pleased, and very impressed . . ..

    THANK YOU

    Just this guy you know

    It's always good to hear the positive stories. Normally no news is the only way you assume it's good news.

    Thanks for mentioning this, Jono !
    I see two major benefits : they are in Europe (no hassle with the customs) and they stock the EP-10 of which I already lost two !!!

    I also used them to get a replacement EP-10 which I lost. Good to know their repair service is good too.

    I too got an eyecup from them. I dropped my om-d just before Christmas and sent it to Olympus for repair (the EVF wasn't displaying properly) two days ago. I'll keep you posted on progress.
