I've been asked if I can suggest anyone who is still able to service and/or repair Nikonos 5 cameras and equipment. Parts it appears are becoming scarce and most of my contacts appear no longer are able to help. Any suggestions (with contact emails) gratefully received.

Bob at Southern Nikonos here in Houston still does. I think they have a website.

Thanks James

I had come across Southern Nikonos before (I realised when I looked at their website) and I've passed on the details.

Subaquatic Camera is a great shop. Good guys and knowledge. Worth contacting them. At one point (may still do so) I am pretty sure they make their own replacement parts also for things they knew would be difficult to get. Have had Nikonos and other items serviced by them and they never tell you you need something if you do not and will dissuade you (or at least point out) things that may not make sense to do.

I've always had great service at backscatter.com. Although it's been over a year since my last service.
