Campkins Cameras

Campkins Cameras is an independent, family-run retail business specialising in the sale of new and second hand cameras both modern and vintage, binoculars and telescopes. We’ve been a feature of the Cambridge High Street, serving the photographic and optical needs of the local community since 1955. 

Owen Howell, the current owner was born into the business, learning all about the new and used camera trade from his father Barry and grandfather Tom, before eventually taking over the reigns himself. Now, with a team of highly qualified employees that are also practicing photographers, Campkins staff has over 50 years combined photography experience.

Our proud heritage extends beyond expertise in photography and optics to a desire to always provide exceptional customer service, sound advice and the best value we can. At a time when surviving as an independent retailer is more challenging than ever, we understand that customers value our unique services and friendly, face-to-face interaction which can’t be found online, at a general electronics outlet or a department store.
