Following the latest UK government guidelines our London store is temporarily closed. We will continue to deliver online orders as usual.
We at The Classic Camera have been trading in the heart of London’s photographic retail district for over 20 years dealing in rangefinder cameras and high quality optics. Although much has changed since we first opened, we still maintain that the best way to make your photographic purchase is to get the product in your hands. Our staff have many years experience with Leica, Zeiss and Voigtlander equipment as well as many other quality brands. We possess the kind of hands-on knowledge that only years of front-line experience in bricks and mortar shops can bring.As well as 35mm film cameras, our passion extends to modern digital mirrorless systems. Leica, Sony and Fujifilm’s revolutionary mirrorless offerings fit the philosophy of a compact and discreet workflow whilst providing uncompromising quality. All of our stock, both new and second hand, can be found on this website which is updated daily. We welcome trade-ins or part exchanges and are happy to retail your own equipment on a commission basis. In addition, we offer repairs and servicing of mechanical cameras and sensor cleaning for digital cameras. We hope you enjoy using this website and hope that it encourages you to visit us in person be it for advice, trade or just to see our fantastic stock!
