They are out of business not much help
Expert:  Russell H. replied 5 months ago.

I'm sorry to hear that!

They were even listed in Google's listing, though the other listing looked dubious... I'm sorry if I didn't mention that.

I take it that Smyrna (about 60 mi. away past Atlanta) is too far to go. So I am searching for other camera shops in Columbus GA now....

Here's another listing in Columbus:

Camera 1

*****/p>

Columbus, GA 31906

This one may only be a 'camera store' and provide no repairs:

Wolf Camera
2301 Airport Thruway
Columbus, Georgia, 31904
Phone:(###) ###-####/p>

Please let me know whether either of these offers any help.

[*sigh*] Why is everyone into cameras abandoning West Georgia??

I never ran into this sort of situation anywhere else... and I've done lots of research for camera shops.

There's another shop in Columbus that I didn't mention, they're into security cameras, which are quite different from DSLRs, so I didn't mention them.

You may end up being well advised to either take, or send/ship, the camera-and-lens to Smyrna, to the fully Nikon Authorized shop there.

I'm looking for more listings... nearer than Smyran... let me know if you'd like the phone # ***** the security camera shop just in case, if you want.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 5 months ago.

Columbus GA just doesn't have any other listings that I can find.

Nearby burgs: Albany GA, Macon GA, and here's one even closer across the state line in Auburn Alabama:

Cameragraphics

University Crossing Shopping Center

Address: 1625 E University Dr #102,

Auburn, AL 36830

Phone(###) ###-####/p>

- they do camera repair, despite the name.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 5 months ago.

This is just south of Macon GA, and is listed as Camera Repair, despite the name:

Ava Video Productions
