Where in Nairobi can I get my camera sensor professionally c

Hi there,

I will be in Nairobi for a day before flying to Ethiopia. I really need to get my camera sensor cleaned. Is there any professional and trustworthy store where I can get this done?

Thanks in advance

:)

You can check out Camcraft Limited adjacent to The Sarova Stanley hotel - Kimathi Street

There is an official NIKON dealer in Kimathi Street (CBD). It's called Elite studios and they do repairs. Otherwise, on Mombasa Road is a Canon shop (some years ago they repaired my Nikon Camera). It's outside of Nairobi on the way to Mombasa.

Thank you for all your help. Its been a bit of a pain on the road out here having to do this every so often and camera service centres are not easy to come by.

Do you think its safe to take a taxi in Nairobi traveling with my camera?

I only use Uber or Little in Nairobi. They are much cheaper and more reliable than conventional taxis. Don't worry you'll be quite safe even if you take your camera with you.

I wouldn't recommend Elite Studios, took my Nikon camera there to have zoom lens fixed. Had to wait 6 weeks and pay $60 but it only worked for a couple of weeks before it broke again.

Ah ok, I bought my new camera there two months ago. They offered good packages and the indian owner told me he also repairs cameras. Good to know. Asante.
