  • Light Seals

    Light seals, are thin strips of black foam that keep unwanted light from leaking into your camera body. Since they degrade with time, we replace them on every camera that needs it. This keeps your images free of light leaks.

  • Automatic Exposure / Metering

    The amount of automatic features in a camera will determine the path of machine testing we must perform. These tests can check light meters and automatic features through a range of exposure values. Calibrated lenses and calibrated light boxes also assist in this process.

  • Shutter Speeds

    We use period-appropriate, professional-grade testing equipment as necessary to accurately assess shutter performance. These machines tell us how long a shutter stays open and whether or not the shutter curtains are moving correctly. We have multiple machines that allow us to test nearly every camera type available.

  • Infinity Focusing & Rangefinder Alignment

    Our collimator is used to simulate infinity focus for the purpose of ensuring lens alignment & focus at any distance. We also use a special high-contrast target board to ensure that rangefinders are properly aligned both vertically & horizontally.
