For those who want to go beyond standard "CLA" repair services, this Restoration is a complete service package for your classic camera.
- Repair and adjustment of all systems to factory specifications, including shutter, light meter, and film transport.
- Complete overhaul, involving strip-down and re-build, replacing all grease and lubricants
- Replacement of all foam & light seals, and of minor parts as needed
- Calibration of light meter to work accurately with modern batteries (silver or alkaline)
- Full cleaning, both internal and external

Our technician has bountiful experience with the Nikon Nikkormat (Nikomat when sold in Japan) series, and has been repairing and servicing them since 1978. You won't find a better-made camera.
Restoration service includes repair of the camera (even if the shutter does not fire, or the meter does not work, etc.) and minor parts. If substantial parts are needed, you would be notified in advance of any price increase.
If, for any reason, the camera cannot be repaired, we will give a full refund of labor charges, and you pay only return shipping.
These machines were built to use 1.35v mercury batteries, which have since been banned. Included in our restoration service is a recalibration of the light meter to operate accurately with the modern 1.5v replacements (both alkaline and silver batteries will work).

Great work! I highly recommend Lezot's restoration service... best money I have ever spent. My Nikkormat FT3 returned operating like a brand new fresh off the line camera. They even brought the light meter back to life. Awesome! They for sure have all my future business.

I have been looking for a trustworthy repair shop for my old Nikon Nikkormat for several years. A friend suggested LeZot. Checked the web site and other reviews and sent the camera in for a tune-up. Very fast service. LeZot rehabilitated a 50 yr old camera to brand new functionality (including the 1,5v battery upgrade) Excellent work! Highly recommended!
Quick restoration with great communication and results
