Sell To Us
We specialise in all types of classic film cameras, lenses, and accessories. We are exclusively analogue and do not deal in any digital equipment.
We're always looking to buy quality 35mm, medium and large format equipment. Whether you have a single item or an entire collection, fill in the form and we will get back to you as soon as we can. If you have photos of your items, you can send them to our email address, found on the contact page.
We offer a simple and straightforward selling service.
We can offer DPD pickup for small batches of equipment. It's a next-day, insured and tracked service.
For very large collections which are not practical to send in the post, we can even do our best to estimate the value of your equipment and provide a rough assessment beforehand, then arrange a personal collection anywhere in the UK.
How does it work?
1. Fill in the form
Tell us what you're looking to sell. If you're not sure, or have photos of the equipment to send over - let us know. We'll reply as soon as we can with an estimate.
2. We check the gear out
You can visit us, send us the equipment, or we can arrange to have your items collected by DPD if required.
Once received, our standard procedure is to itemise everything when checking and testing. We then individually grade and give all items a final price for you.
Important! We strongly recommend making an appointment to sell equipment in person- we cannot always serve walk-ins if we are busy!
We pay you and then you go out and buy a new Lamborghini.
We're a totally cashless business, and we can only make payments by Bank Transfer. We can't make payments by cash, cheque or M&S vouchers.
If you don't want to accept our final quote, we can return any or all your equipment at no cost to you.
If you do not need the items back, we can enter any unwanted or unsaleable items into a charity auction. All proceeds benefit our chosen year's locally-based charity.
In 2022 our customers helped raise £4,478.03 towards refurbishment of Hyde Park Picture House. A historic cinema, Hyde Park Picture House is a registered charity, and part of Leeds Heritage Theatres.
In 2021 our customers helped to raise £3,309.67 for Simon On The Streets, a Leeds-based charity which supports the homeless and vulnerable.
Why sell with us?
Since 2012, we've bought and sold tens-of-thousands of classic photographica. From the everyday, to incredibly rare and sought after. Sometimes a minor detail can have a major effect on price. We take pride in having the knowledge and the experience to make sure you're getting the best deal on your equipment.
We're one of the very few analogue specialist brick-and-mortar shops in the UK. Our bright and welcoming premises are situated in the Victorian Grand Arcade, in Leeds city centre. You can rest safe in the knowledge that we're not an anonymous, faceless online-only website.
You're not limited to emailing! If you prefer then you can come along and see us, or call us up and speak to one of our small team.
What if we don't agree on price?
If we don't agree on a final price, we can return the equipment at no cost to you.
Prices we initially quote are estimates only – we have to inspect your equipment before making a final offer.
We take great care to ensure that cameras and lenses are in good condition for the next person to enjoy. This involves testing and checking everything. Faults, damage or signs of wear can reduce the value of an item. On the other hand, we can increase our offer if the items are in better-than-expected condition.
What do we do with your information?
Nowt! We’ll only use your email address or phone number to contact you about your enquiry. We will never use your details for anything else. We won’t send you spam in the distant future or give your details to any third parties.
