VINTAGE FILM CAMERA SPECIALISTS:
Welcome to our new website.
We sell serviced, working second-hand vintage and antique photographic film cameras, as well as a selected range of film and accessories.
Every single one of our vintage cameras is serviced professionally in our workshop, before being offered up for sale with a guarantee of up to 90 days.
GREENWICHCAMERAS started, like many labours of love, from a lifelong passion for photography and cameras. Claude, a keen photographer with a quick witted eye, so says I, was always a curious and resourceful camera nerd and collector, with an interest in antique clock movements. Almost everything was dismantled to be rebuilt with great care. Once upon a time in the fairly recent past, some four years ago, to be vaguely precise, he finally turned that consuming passion into a business.
[Unless stated otherwise, All our SLR, TLR, rangefinders, folders and antiques have received a full service, all out electronic point and shoots have received our routine light service. See here for details of what this means and examples of the work we do on each camera.]
Here you'll also find the extraordinary artisan and speciality film range from Film Washi. And we are proud to be the exclusive UK partners of the BCG Film Company, who launched their first film in 2019, the stunning BCG-P400 in 35mm, with medium format due in 2020, and the striking new PHC50 just launched.
Beginner, ardent film fan, student, seasoned photographer, collector, nostalgic or merely curious? Come to us for trustworthy bargains, gorgeous classics, noble antiques.

We'll point you in the right direction, and pair you up with a perfect camera for your needs. We specialize in helping you take your first steps into the world of film photography. We'll be delighted to show you how your camera works, how to load the film or to demonstrate any model we have for sale. Come round for friendly and knowledgeable service or to show us your camera and photos.
We also buy cameras or collections with a promise of fair prices.
Be sure to check our website regularly as our stock is constantly being updated.
Please note that we do not sell digital cameras. All our cameras use photographic film or plates which require chemical processing before you can see your photos either in print or scanned digitally. We do, however, supply scanners for you to share or publish your analogue photos digitally.
Where do we get our film from?
We guarantee that all our new film stock is factory fresh and supplied to us directly by the manufacturers or their official distributors. Their strict and transparent quality control ensures that all new film we sell has been transported and stored in ideal conditions. We do not use grey imports.
Please note that some cameras come and go very rapidly. Don't be annoyed if we continue to display cameras that have been sold. We leave them up for a while, after they sell, to inform prospective buyers that they are no longer available, rather than removing them immediately, which might leave people perplexed if the camera they are looking at suddenly vanishes.
