Looking to buy Film Cameras?

Our selection of film cameras is the best place to be if you want to take photographs with a retro edge. Although digital cameras are a great asset, the ease with which you can snap thousands of pics can create a sense of carelessness with shot composition and the other aspects of a truly great photograph. With the permanence of camera film you reintroduce risk, meaning every shot has to count. Plus there are creative techniques that can only truly be accomplished with film cameras.

Instant cameras

For a quick an easy introduction to the pleasures of film cameras, we've got an amazing collection of instant cameras to choose from. Instants make such good film cameras for beginners because you don't have to worry about the messy, time-intensive development process. Just line up your shot, press the shutter button and you're done! After just a few minutes your photo will develop all on its own.

You'll find models from the biggest instant camera brands here. We of course have Polaroid instant cameras as well as the slightly less famous (but no less awesome) Fujifilm instant cameras. You can even buy digital instant cameras. These nifty machines store the snaps they take before developing them. That way if a family member blinks or a car blocks your view as you take the photo you haven't wasted a shot!

The other reason to buy an instant camera is the iconic look of photos taken on them. It's not just about the square picture frame with the huge white border (although that's definitely part of the fun!). It's also the unique nature of the quick exposure chemical process, which creates gorgeous lo-fi shots with crushed contrast, saturated colours and strange exposures. There's a reason tech companies have spent so much time trying to recreate the experience with digital filters - but nothing beats the real thing!

We also have many disposable film cameras in this selection. These are simple, inexpensive film cameras that contain a roll of shots, normally 27. A real snap to use (sorry), these hardy cameras are perfect for taking with you on holiday as well as for giving to kids so that they can practice taking photos. Since the photos are developed later, the images tend to have a more natural look than the washed out vibes instant cameras.

35mm film cameras

While instant cameras are fun and great beginner film cameras, if you want more flexibility with what kind of shots you can take, you'll need the power that comes with 35mm film. This has been the standard film format for still photography for almost 100 years, and there's a reason for that. The best film cameras use 35mm because it captures a higher dynamic range (the difference between light and dark in an image) than even top professional digital cameras can.

You'll have a lot more control over photographs taken with these vintage film cameras than with instant snappers, too. While instant cameras are point and shoot, with 35mm cameras you can adjust the shutter speed and aperture manually - vitally important for capturing an image the way you want it to look. You can also buy different camera lenses for different scenes, as well. When you buy film cameras for the first time you're getting into a hobby that opens up a lot of possibilities based on what accessories you choose. Explore our full camera accessories department to find amazing tools that are compatible with your new film camera.
