Beaulieu Service

Who is still servicing Beaulieu these days?

Is there anyone worth their salt in the USA?

Good Luck

Funny, I just received a 7008 Pro II that was in worse shape than described, and was thinking the same! Only guy I could think of in the States is Bernie at Super 16 Inc. I've emailed Bjorn in Sweden about this 7008, but I'm afraid at what the price may be plus, shipping and conversion of USD to Euro.

I'll wait to hear from Bjorn, then maybe check with Bernie before returning this camera. 7008 Pro II's don't come up that often!

Bernie is great, especially with any 16mm camera, but if you want your Beaulieu serviced, it really is worth the time and cost of sending it to Bjorn.

Me made two of my 4008's better than new. I really mean that. I could tell a major difference in the actual sound of the motor running and the actual film results. He has the original factory parts and makes it his mission to keep these cameras alive and running their best.

It is a pain with all the customs stuff but totally worth it.

The 7008 pro II is a modified camera from Pro8mm. It didn't come from Beaulieu like that.
Unfortunately pro8mm is known for its pro pricing :)
Kind regards,

John we bought the same camera, first time the seller listed and I bought, he showed every side of the camera but from the back with all the wires hanging out, even had pics with the module in the camera. I had a heck of a time returning it to the seller as he put up a bit of a fight.

I think costs of sending it to Bjorn would run at least $400-500, plus parts if needed, I didn't want to chance it.
