Where to repair?

My son's pentax slr needs repair. We have no local repair services. Does anyone have experience with a repair service that is reliable and expedicious? He is going to boulder co in 2 weeks sms would love to have it for that trip. Thanks in advance.

2 weeks hardly will give time for repairs. Considering travel time (don't know where your son is located), of about a week total, leaves little time for actual repair; and if they have the parts needed. I'm assuming it's out of warranty; so you might contact KEH re/repair.

Repairs are not cheap, nor fast :-) Some new cameras are selling for low prices.

+1 on this suggestion. Considering cost of repairs, time lost; buying new makes a lot of sense, and with some specials could be less expensive. Like this sale, for instance. (Don't know if it's still going on, but may be available elsewhere).

What's the camera, and what's wrong with it? It's certainly possible to get a vintage film camera repaired in that time locally, but not a digital, since it will have to be sent to Precision or a similar service center.
