    Can anyone recommend a decent analog repair shop in the US? My little Konica Eye 2 is in near mint external shape, but the shutter is sticky - sometimes the exposure is correct, sometimes it over exposes badly. At first I thought it was just my technique, but someone else looked at the camera and said the shutter is sticking open. Also, the distance indicator is detached from the focus ring. Not a big deal, but being a scale focus camera with an uncoupled view finder, I've forgotten a few times to reset the focus ring before clicking. I have about zero knowledge of the innards of a camera. Any suggestions?

    KEH camera in Atlanta has a good repair service, but expect the cost to be $100 or so.

    Does this camera have a behind-the-lens shutter? If so, squirting a little lighter fluid into it usually frees things up.

    Thanks for that infro, Brian. I haven't tried the lighter fluid trick.
