Collectors and camera enthusiasts value antique and vintage cameras for several reasons. Cameras changed and evolved through the 1800s and 1900s, with each type having distinct characteristics that affect the quality of the photograph.


A vintage camera uses light-sensitive film to capture images, and from 35mm SLR cameras to instant cameras, film cameras boasted a long history before the introduction of digital photography. Choose from several top brands including Kodak, Polaroid, Leica, and Canon when shopping for a vintage camera.
