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), Manfrotto and Sir Kenneth Corfield.
