Cameras & Camera Equipment

With technology changing rapidly, early cameras are increasingly taking on historic status. The 25 0-Series Leica cameras created in 1923 are among the rarest models and have previously broken records when they appear on the market.

Operating at a lower price point, there’s no shortage of collectors for vintage cameras and associated equipment. Specialist dealers operate in this field and a number of auction houses hold regular sales devoted to this category offering items including forerunners to the camera such as magic lanterns, zeotropes and praxinoscopes.
