Camera Repair reviews in New York
I had a fairly large amount of Super 8mm film that I wanted to transfer to video/DVD. I knew that camera shops often perform this service, and Camera Doctor did indeed offer the service. So I had them do one large reel as a test.
There were a number of problems with the resulting video transfer:
- Their process uses an old machine to project the film and record onto videotape. Yes, VIDEOTAPE. They then convert that to DVD. The resulting quality is pretty bad. Modern shops use a "direct imaging" process to go from the film direct to digital image.
- The resulting DVD had their business name and promotional graphics covering the disc, with little space left to add my own labeling. Note that you can't stick labels onto DVDs. Other shops leave a LOT more whitespace.
- It was fairly expensive. For that price, I expect good results.
Now, they were very convenient to me (I live in the neighborhood) and so this was a good test for me. I learned what questions I needed to ask other shops that I evaluated, and I did find another shop that did an excellent job.
So, again, Camera Doctor is great for camera repair, their core business, but take your film transfer jobs elsewhere.
There is a message window to enter info on your camera problems and then submit it to the provider...with the promise of a prompt response.
I filled out the message window (in fact twice, with a follow-up) and there has been no response.
I am giving this vendor a grade of F based on no response, but will be happy to ammend/remove if there are mitigating circumstances.
