We specialise in converting, servicing, testing and repairing film, broadcast, professional, industrial and projection lenses for film and television industries in the UK and internationally.
Our range of services include updating vintage lenses to work with modern equipment, preventative maintenance, the repair of damaged and worn lenses, and the refurbishment of tripods and fluid heads.
The Lens Service Department offers a swift turn around on the service and repair of film, broadcast and projection lenses from most makers. It is fully supported by an in-house CNC workshop which is capable of bespoke product design and manufacture, including our own mattebox range, covering a wide spectrum of cameras and lenses, from mini DV to full broadcast cameras. Each mattebox can be tailored to customer requirements.
The test and setup equipment available to the service engineers enable them to quickly diagnose faults, rectify and return each lens to full working specification. The TLS service department also carries out refurbishment to tripods and fluid heads from all major manufacturers.
Through in-house design, TLS produces a range of mechanical supports, adaptor rings, associated camera mounts and fixings.
