Where else are you going to find a school dedicated to repairing cameras? The answer is .... nowhere.

This first lesson packs a good punch for it's size. Not only do you learn the basic system's but you learn how to do basic cleaning and document problems.

It's a good start and I look forward to my next lesson.
Excellent Material
