We started business in 2008.
Why are we going backwards when everyone else is chasing speed and convenience?
Not because we have more time than others; just that we cherish a particular art form.
More than a decade in photo-journalism has left a habit of not only recording life as it is, but also a feel for the texture of each image.
In these days of fast-moving technology, images come and go; but the texture under light and shadow stays to be savoured.

A GUIDE TO OUR GRADING DESCRIPTIONS
Our condition ratings are used as a guide, we endeavour to give the most complete and accurate description of each item, however we aren’t always perfect.
Cameras and Lenses come only with front, rear or body caps. They do not come with hoods, boxes, manuals, etc. unless otherwise stated.
Some of the equipment we sell has been inspected and is in full working order and comes with 12 months guarantee.
As New Condition – Virtually unused
The item will be unmarked and in the same condition as purchasing a brand new item.
Mint Condition – No visible marks
The item will have been lightly used but extremely well looked after.
Near Mint condition
Item may show a very faint rub mark on body or barrel.
Item may show a very fine mark on body or barrel.
Item may show slight signs of wear.
Would overall be in very clean condition however there might be some small cosmetic marks and in some places (usually on the edges) it might have just gone through the paint. A majority of these marks would only be visible under close inspection, at arms length only 1 or 2 marks might be visible.

Occasionally there might be a small mark on one of the optics, but nothing that would affect optical performance.

Most of our used equipment is from keen amateurs and is in full working order and comes with a 12 months guarantee, unless otherwise stated.
Lenses will very rarely have any heavy marks on the elements or fungus; if they do we try our best to point out all the cosmetic marks and imperfections.
