Camera Club (カメラクラブ, Kamera kurabu) was a monthly Japanese photographic magazine that ran from 1936 to 1940.

Camera Club was published by Ars (アルス, Arusu) as the continuation of a twenty-volume series (1935–6), Arusu Saishin Shashin Daikōza (アルス最新写真大講座, the comprehensive Ars course in the latest photography). It was intended as an introductory magazine for a mass audience, and its first issue was dated October 1936. Its last was dated December 1940, whereupon it was merged with Ars Camera and Shashin Salon to create Shashin Bunka.

After the war, it (or a very similar magazine) was revived under the title Shashin no Kyōshitsu.
