I Can See Clearly Now20th June 2014 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
My trusty Panasonic Lumix camera had developed some patches of fogging on the lens and I was beginning to think it would have to be replaced. An internet search revealed that compact cameras tend to develop this problem because a vacuum is created when the zoom lens moves in and out and it tends to draw in dust and pollen. There was a YouTube film on how to fix this yourself, but that was way beyond my abilities. Further searching (not very far) on Google came up with Clearer Images Camera Repair Service www.acecamerarepair.co.uk. What a brilliant company! After emailing them I sent the camera to them on Thursday, they acknowledged its arrival on Friday, told me it was fixed on Saturday, I paid the £38.70 cost of repair (incl. return postage) via a Paypal invoice on Sunday, they confirmed despatch on Monday and it arrived by special delivery on Tuesday. They specialise in Panasonic cameras but other makes are listed, so I’m sure it is worth checking.
