On giving old cameras a second life.
From flea markets to collectors, passing by friends and private sellers, we carefully handpick our cameras from different sources and perform basic verifications to ensure they are operational or can be repaired.
A deeper diagnosis is then performed by our technicians Myya and Virginie. Most of the time, these 30+ year old cameras need to be revised or repaired before they can be used again.
The light seals are changed, the lens cleaned and the shutter speeds adjusted, among other things.
A quality assurance check is then carried to ensure nothing was overlooked.
A film format basically represents the size of the film. The most popular film formats are 35mm, medium format (120/220), or large format (4x5, 8x10). For now, we only sell 35mm cameras (compact, rangefinder and SLR ones) but are considering extending our offering to other formats in the future.
From flea markets to collectors, passing by friends and private sellers, we carefully handpick our cameras from different sources. We prefer to select used vintage cameras to give them a second life, although we sometimes sell new cameras that come in their original box.
We take great pride in ensuring that every camera and lens we offer has undergone meticulous revision and repair by our team of expert technicians. Our dedicated professionals possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field, allowing them to carefully inspect, evaluate, and repair each camera to guarantee they’re in excellent working condition when they land in your hands.
With our commitment to quality and expertise, you can trust that the camera you purchase from us has been carefully revised, and repaired to provide you with a reliable and enjoyable shooting experience.
Several factors are considered when calculating our prices to ensure a fair and competitive offering:
- Market Price: We assess the current market value of the camera and lens models, taking into consideration factors such as demand, availability, and overall market trends. This helps us establish a price that aligns with the prevailing market conditions.
- Camera Condition and Revisions: The price reflects the cost of revising and repairing the cameras and lenses to ensure they are in excellent working condition. We invest in thorough inspections and any necessary repairs to provide you with cameras that function optimally.
- Brand and Model Reputation: The reputation and desirability of the camera brand and model also influence the pricing. Cameras from renowned brands or those known for their exceptional features or craftsmanship may have a higher price point due to their perceived value.
- Rarity and Collectibility: If a camera is rare or has collectible value due to its age, limited production, or historical significance, it may be priced accordingly to reflect its unique attributes and desirability among collectors.
- Customer Value: We strive to offer competitive pricing while ensuring customers receive a fair value for their investment.
By considering these factors, we establish a fair price that ultimately provides our customers with a comprehensive and satisfying package.
