I’ve had several of you contact me asking about who did the rebuild on my latest M3.
The answer is:
集英堂写真機 SHUEIDO CAMERA
They are based in Taiwan and they do amazing work, as you can see.
The results are not just cosmetically impressive — the camera functions exceptionally smoothly and accurately.
Having now commissioned two M3 cameras (first a Single Stroke and now a Double Stroke) from Shueido, I would say overall they are among the best rebuilds I have ever owned.
The customer service is also exceptional.
NOTE: As long time visitors to this blog know, I pay for my own gear and do not receive any compensation for endorsement. My opinion is based based on my personal experience.
This season is officially history.
Speaking of which, the medium of film gives this photo a nice vintage vibe.
Lastly, I choose the skyline + clubhouse as a backdrop but I lucked out that the field was empty and the sky was overcast (making for some gentle lighting despite it being midday).
