From x12, Factory's Newsletter

Our newsletter, X12, is a useful resource for film photographers. Sometimes the articles are too long to send in an email, so we link to then here. There are also a handful of items from pre-X12.

Awesome experience. Kevin brought my Minolta SR-T 101 back into working condition in less than a week. He fully communicated every step of the process and what needed to be done... Definitely will be using Factory again. Thanks again, Kevin!!

Nothing but good has come from Kevin since meeting him, super knowledgeable about cameras and very friendly. I had some issues with my Mamiya m645, the internal light seals were pealing and the shutter curtains was out of sync. He fixed it for a very reasonable price and did a great job. 10/10 would recommend his service to anyone... Couldn't be happier with the result!
