Trustworthy, Fast and Convenient

Big thanks to George and Debbie for coming to Jacksonville! Your service is not only needed for myself, but for so many other photographers in the area. The communication process during cleaning/repair was very much appreciated and the convenience of drop off and delivery was super easy. Knowing my equipment was in good hands locally, was by far a bonus! Thanks for being so honest, accommodating and friendly. You will surely see me again and I will gladly share my experience with local photography groups. Thanks again!

Elated to Have Such a Reliable, Honest & Outstanding Camera Repair Back in JAX

What a find! I was originally skeptical about taking my camera & lenses to someone who had yet to build a longstanding reputation in JAX but after discovering that Lensfly encouraged them to move their business down from Boston, I contacted Lensfly to see if they were authentic. They gave them the highest laurels and provided me the security I knew I needed. After meeting with George, I immediately knew my camera equip was in the hands of an honest, ethical & highly skilled craftsman. I had camera cleaned and fine tuned along with having both 400mm & 500mm lens cleaned & calibrated. Not only do they perform so much better now, he provided me with camera tips to enhancing my photo quality. Sure beats sending your camera off to Never never Nikon land. His prices were highly reasonable and his turn around time was amazing. Thank you George!

Excellent repair and help with solutions

Dropped 18-105 lens. George repaired it and tuned up my D7000 camera.I was also looking for wireless remote shutter release. He helped me find RF remote at reasonable price. He also showed me how to set up my D7000 to use some of my older lenses from my Nikon G3. He is very knowledgeable and can answer any questions you have about your camera. I would recommend him to anyone who has digital SLR camera Thank you George!!

Fantas Tec NE is FANTASTIC!

Fantas Tec NE is literally FANTASTIC! I was in desperate need of having my Nikon Nikor 18mm-200mm lens repaired after my camera fell from my lap and landed lens-face down. The metal front barrel assembly retainer needed to be replaced and there was no one in Jacksonville, FL qualified to do it. As a matter of fact the local specialty lens store here (who I totally trust) told me the only one in the US, other than Nikon USA, who could do such a repair was George Barroso at FantastecNE...and George would do a better job for less cost. So I contacted George and he requested photos of the damage which I emailed to him. After reviewing the photos Debbie wrote back that they could do the repair but not until mid October after they completed their business relocation. I explained to Debbie we had a long planned trip to NYC in mid-October and was hoping to use my Nikon camera /lens. So, Debbie instructed me to send the lens in right away and they would do their best to get it completed before our NYC trip. Less than one week after sending in my lens I had it back in hand EXPERTLY repaired, lubricated, and a 10 point maintenance performed. It has never performed better. I am one happy camper! THANKS FANTASTEC-NE!

THE shop for 35mm camera repairs + questions

George at FantasTec is simply the best ! He is incredibly knowledgeable about Nikons and Canons. His passion for SLRs / film photography and for helping find solutions for his customers is apparent. He kindly and conscientiously helped me solve a Nikon EM problem I experienced, walking me through each step of the troubleshooting process. Look no further - FantasTec is the place to go for film camera repairs, issues, and information. Thank you, George !

Testimonial #74

Extremely knowledgeable, reasonably priced and fast service. Top notch local shop. Would use them again....though I hope I never drop my camera again :-)

I never imagined I could have my own camera repair guy? George and Debbie give personal repair service to photographers! I no longer have to mail equipment to a faceless company. George took my lens apart with me standing there, and showed me broken guides. He repaired my lens and it is like a different lens now. He also repaired a shutter button on my backup camera. I thought the camera was toast but instead, $120 repair and that works like new! I now have a guy I can call up when something is wacky, who can hear first hand what is wrong, and fix it. Like an auto mechanic for camera equipment. An honest one. Life is good when you have your own camera repair guy!

Excellent service at a reasonable price, goodbye Canon repair services!

FantasTec NE is fantastic!

I am a professional photographer and photography instructor. I damaged my Canon 7D taking photos at the Boston Marathon in the rain. I brought the camera to Fantastec NE and they fixed it quickly and at a very reasonable price. Geroge and Debbie are both great! Communications were great! Turn-around was great! And the wotrk is supurb. Geroge took a lot of time with me to explain the issue and the repair. I would not heistate to take any one of my full frame cameras to Geroge in the future for repair or for routine cleaning and maintenance. He repairs all brands.

Excellent Customer Services and Super Friendly

FantasTec was SO very helpful. They answered my phone calls and emails immediately, they were extremely nice over the phone and very pleasant, Friendly and understanding of my concerns for my broken camera. And the camera came back looking like it was new and works perfectly! Probably the best Camera repair service in New England no doubt about it! I will be using Fantastec for all of our remaining Camera repairs in the future =). Excellent services! Thank you FantasTec!

Above and beyond

I would highly recommend using FantasTec for your camera repairs. I decided to go with them after reading reviews about them online. I found them to be personable, honest, easy to get a hold of, and they absolutely knew what they were doing! They were very thorough as well. It’s a matter of trust when you hand over your camera and lens for repair, and I trust them completely! I am spreading the word through the photography circles I am in!

Excellent, fast, courteous professional service

One of my cameras, a trusty old Nikon D80 and one of its lenses were in need of some repair and maintenance after ten years and some 57,000 shots. I was extremely pleased with the quality of the work performed, the quick turnaround, and the extremely helpful, courteous, and professional communication I experienced here. Thank you very much!
Will definitely recommend FantasTec to friends and colleagues.

Amazing service! They were very responsive to emails, answered every question I had, and....bonus...were super friendly! They were very knowledgeable and I was confident leaving my camera with them. I'll definitely recommend their services.

Best service ever. I would use this company again anytime I need service for my Canon, Nikon or Sony cameras. George and Debbie went above and beyond to make sure I knew what was going on at all times. Their prices are very reasonable and they do a great job.

Baby dropped my camera: FantasTec NE to the rescue.

Truly charming people with a real passion for their craft. I am genuinely happy I chose them to service my equipment. I would absolutely recommend them and would use them again in an instant if need be. 

Nikon D80

Unbelievable great experience. Everything went like clockwork. George and Debbie were professional, quick to reply to all messages and provided the kind of service we all wish for. My Nikon D80 looks brand new and operates so smoothly. Don't hesitate to use this service.

Absolutely Satisfied

My camera was no longer reading the memory cards. I've been looking for someone for weeks to fix it, without results. I then found on the FantasTec web and tried to write an email to get information. Debbie's speed in answering my every question really surprised me. They fixed my camera in a record time and I sent it back immediately informing me of any repairs made with a very accurate repair card. When I opened the box I struggled to recognize my camera ... it sounded new. I am glad to have discovered FantasTec, honest, fast and convenient !!
