Schneider Kreuznach Cinegon Disassembly


Leica lens disassembly

Camera Revival has the experience and the necessary tools and skills to bring your vintage lenses back into working condition. You can drop off your lenses, in order to clean the optics, clean the aperture mechanism, regrease the helicoids for a smooth focus and improve the overall aesthetic condition of the lens. This also includes a full revision and infinity focus adjustments.

With a wide variety of optical tools at our disposal such as vertical collimators, auto-collimators and other measurements devices, we can deliver tolerances according to factory standards or even better.

Does your lens have fungus? Camera Revival can provide a full antifungal treatment of your precious lens. The antifungal treatment includes a complete revision of the lens because it’s the only way to exterminate all fungus traces and stop further contamination.

In the future we plan to provide polishing, recoating and recementing services.

Cine modding of lenses

Camera Revival can help you to make your still photography lenses more usable for cinematography projects. This includes fine focus adjustments as well as de-clicking of the aperture mechanism in order to allow fine step-less and dampened movement of your aperture.

Some still photography lenses are more suited to these kinds of adjustments than others. This is mainly affected by the design and construction of the lens. Don’t hesitate to contact us in order to verify if we can cinĂ© mod your lens.

What’s in a name? CLA stands for Clean, Lube and Adjust. It’s the industry standard terminology for servicing your camera and/or lens. However, the term CLA is subject to interpretation. At Camera Revival, we will tell you what we will do when we do a CLA. In some cases, it might mean we need to do a partial revision and/or disassembly of the device. The goal is to get your camera and/or lens into working condition. Because there is still a major difference between working and working as it should be.

Let’s not forget that the majority of the vintage analogue cameras and/or lenses on the market haven’t seen a service for decades. These devices are mechanical engineering wonders and as everything mechanical, need a frequent service in order to guarantee the proper functioning. It not only improves the durability, but also reduces the wear of internal parts.

We provide CLA services and/or partial revisions for the majority of camera brands. Don’t hesitate to contact us for questions or inquiries.



Every camera and lens is different and every issue is usually also different. We can provide you with an estimate of the service or repair cost once we had the possibility to inspect the item. We charge a 45 EUR cost for inspection per item. After providing you with an estimate, this amount can be used as a credit for the total service or repair cost of that particular item.
