    Welcome

    On these pages you'll find my collection of vintage cameras and some information on how to fix them, as many of these showed the signs of age and long neglect and it seemed wrong to leave them in that state. Note that this site is, and probably will always be, a work in progress.

    If you want to comment on anything on the website or perhaps want to know more about how to fix certain cameras, please feel free to contact me at:

    About me
    My name is Cees-Jan de Hoog and I live in Edinburgh, Scotland. I am a keen but at best gets-lucky-sometimes amateur photographer, a vintage camera collector with little direction other than taking quantity over quality, and a self-taught camera repair man with reasonable success but unable to keep up with the growing collection. But it keeps me busy and out of trouble, mostly.

    As I have a scientific and analytical background, you'll probably find these pages reflect that. I like numbers, categorising things and understanding how things work and came to be. My artistic side has suffered heavily during the last years whilst I focussed on the technical site of photography, but you can find me on Flickr as stroop.wafel.

    I service and repair old cameras for a fee, please click the camera repair link for info.
