We start with the vintage camera we procure through various camera and antiques dealers nationwide. It has been sitting in an attic or basement for 50+ years and is non-functioning. We lovingly visually restore it with the following:

  • Removal of nicotine, mold, mildew with various solvents
  • Dissemble and clean the lenses and optics
  • Metal polishing using various cleaners and polishing agents
  • Leather cleaning, repair and conditioning
  • Please note: Each light is a little different and will not match the pictures exactly. The camera while clean and complete will have 50 to 80 years of wear and patina that gives it awesome character! Think of all the memories the thing captured. Contact us with questions.
