Why do people still buy vintage cameras?
Many antique and vintage cameras have kept their values well over time partly because the best quality cameras were engineered to a very high standard which makes them repairable but also very durable over time. Also, because many photographers and artists prefer to work with "proper" old school materials (i.e. camera film and photographic paper) rather than simply switching over to digital photography and photoshop, there will always be a demand for old cameras and photographic equipment. I suppose it's a bit like record collectors who would think nothing of spending thousands on an original Elvis Presley 45 even though they already own everything he recorded on perfect sounding MP3s. There is an authenticity about art led photography that will never be replaced with digital photography and people who love art, old photos and the history of art will always be interested in buying and collecting original classic cameras. Manufacturers such as Leica and Zeiss are famous for the quality of their cameras and lenses, other camera producers such as Kodak and Polaroid are more famous for their places in photographic history which were secured by developing unique and popular cameras and products which evoke memories of special times and eras amongst their respective collectors today. We hope you enjoy looking through the pages of cameras for sale. We have lots of vintage cameras listed, but also new cameras and even digital cameras.
