Anyone know if Rumburaski still offers his recap service? I have a Panasonic AG 1980 that I purchased from Ebay in mostly working order except it is definitely due for a recap.

www.tgrantphoto.com does. However, I am not familiar with their work.

Yes, use TGrant. A full recap is about $325.

And don't forget to use the digitalFAQ exclusive coupons: http://www.tgrantphoto.com/sales/ind...talFAQ-coupons

He is good, the best I've seen to date. In fact, we may send him some gear soon, as two 1980P's are acting funky. I don't think the last caps job was done well (performed elsewhere), and he clearly has knowledge on what caused it.

Thanks for the reply and referral.
I waited a few days to see if this would have been a viable route and sent that failed AG1980 back to the seller.

I have since recently sourced a different one and it functions perfectly.
