General Light seal Information

The staff at USCamera still enjoys using film cameras.

We wanted to share the information we have used over the years installing light seals.  In the hopes it would make it easier for customers to decide if installing light seals is for them.

Our service/installation information discussed in this section, is drawn from the experience of 4 photo equipment technicians servicing photo related products from 1975 - 2005 including film/digital accessories, battery grips, cameras, darkroom, flash, lenses, motor drives and more.  All technicians were factory trained on different models. All worked in shops where warranty service was provided on most brands. All performed in and out of warranty service on different makes and models. Over 100 years combined service experience.

We believe we sell the finest camera light seals available.

We start with premium materials. Imported open cell foam from Japan. The finest we could find.

Manufactured to precise thickness and density, specifically for photo and imaging applications.

Our seals are machine cut for accuracy and consistency.

The kit you purchased from us 20 years ago, uses the same premium materials you will receive today.

When we make a new kit, we use a real camera and take measurements for all seals required directly from that sample. Next, we make sure the fit is perfect with the backing in place. Last we do a real install to make sure the seals fit properly.  Some equipment changed over years of production and we make sure our kits include all seals for all years or required changes.

No customer has every reported a light leak after installing one of our kits.
