The business was founded in London during the 1950s, developing from a photographic studio and film processing lab, to general photographic stores in the South of the city. Vintage Cameras then evolved in the early 1970s to specialise in sourcing fine vintage/classic collectibles, rare photographic items and images. High quality film cameras, lenses and accessories (many types, formats and makes) have always been an important section of our stock. We have supplied professional photographers, photo-journalists, amateur photographers, collectors, companies, museums and photo dealers, now in over 40 countries worldwide. Over the years we have had the pleasure to deal with many great camera makers/photographic equipment suppliers such as Fred Gandolfi, Arthur Gandolfi, Fred Spira (Spiratone) and Sir Kenneth Corfield. We have supplied equipment to a number of talented and famous photographers (some PROs): Terry Donovan, Brian May, Terry Jones, William Carter, Mark Pinder, Miranda Richardson, Jeremy Deller, Jack Shepherd, Timothy Spall, Robbie Vincent, Rolf Harris to name a few (we also supplied parts for Alan Whicker's Super Ikonta camera used whilst retracing his wartime experiences in Italy). We now stock many types of cameras: antique, classic and modern, Leica rangefinder & SLR cameras, lenses, photographic accessories, T2 mounts, stepping rings, filters, batteries, projection lamps, bulbs, flash bulbs, cine equipment, (most are listed on this web site, but please ask if you do not see the item you need!). We are now MAIL ORDER specialists and SHIP WORLDWIDE. Vintage Cameras will buy, trade or part-exchange most types of equipment from single items to an entire collection.
