Camera or Lens Repair? SLR cleaning? I have long looked for shops offering this service, but one service shop put my search into an end. Scanning the streets of Palanca and Hidalgo in Manila, I accidentally came across this shop specializing in camera repair, cleaning and vintage parts inspection. It was a few steps away from the well-renowned Mayer and Henry’s Photo Shop (suppliers of SLRs in the metro).
After some chit-chat with Mr. Karlo (enjoying free photography tutorials as well),I found out that he was one of the privileged 2 Filipino photography experts sent abroad for training. He used to work for Columbia in SM Megamall, and is now using his skills and expertise to work for Shurdun.
For the benefit of photography aficionados, here are the details:
Shurdun Camera Repair Shop
Address: 709 R. Hidalgo St., Quiapo Manila
Landmarks: left side of the street if you exit from SM, beside Megacolors
Karlo – 09224644644 (you may inform him that you got his details in BESS photoblog)
Rates (may vary depending on extent of damage):
• SLR cleaning (including fungus removal) – P1000
• Lens Repair (repair of broken/chipped off lenses plus any damage) – P1000
Rates are negotiable (I was given a P500 discount!).
Please take note that you may have to leave your camera/lens for a few hours or overnight to have it repaired. Grateful I was spared the cost of buying a new SLR/lens. Thanks Shurdun.
Shurdun means sure done!
