Running my own camera service has been a dream for me for pretty much the entire 10 year camera technician career.
There was a real opportunity for entrepreneurship as the retiring Camera Service Mustonen offered me the opportunity to buy their business and thus continue to provide camera maintenance services in Finland. This is where the Camera Service Mechser started in January 2020. However, having a full-time entrepreneur would have been too much of a risk for a family man so my company Camera Service Mechser, at least initially, works part-time alongside my day job. Let's see what the new camera maintenance has to do with the current decade.

Camera Service Mechser is located in Pitäjänmäki, Helsinki. The shop is open only by appointment so I recommend to contact me in advance by sending: Repair inquiry.

Could you help?

Being manufactured several decades ago there’s less and less spare parts available for older cameras. For this reason we are willing to collect malfunctioning cameras and optics as spare parts to enable maintenance of older cameras also in the future.

We accept donations of faulty or otherwise malfunctioning equipment. We pay for valuable or larger stocks on a case-by-case basis. If you have faulty equipment in your wardrobe and want to ensure the continuity of photographic culture please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Repair inquiry

Unfortunately we are unable to provide maintenance services for all existing cameras and optics. There might be lack of spare parts, lack of tools or even lack of experience.

Sending a repair inquiry saves time and money. We don’t need to charge a cost estimation fee (35€) if maintenance can be noticed impossible without inspecting.

We will contact you when we have received the Repair Inquiry and evaluate whether the equipment can be repaired. We'll usually respond within the next two business days. If your equipment is noticed possible to repair you will get further instructions to deliver you equipment.

Please notice that we can provide the final cost estimation only after inspecting the device. With the final cost estimation you will receive an estimated schedule for the maintenance.

Camera Service Mechser can’t accept international orders.
