Clean, Lubricate and Adjust

CLA means: clean, lubricate and adjust and is meant for cameras that are serviceable and have been typically used to film within the past year or so. CLA is the typical periodic maintenance that needs to be performed every 2 to 3 years as specified by the manufacturer, Bolex, S.A. of Switzerland.

A CLA typically does not require repair to the camera other than minor adjustments. If the camera does not wind smooth or run smooth, such as the cameras found on eBay or those that have NOT been used or serviced for the last 10 years or longer, the camera may need a more detailed service. We suggest our Extended CLA.

See this link: Excla.html for more information.
