Arthur Rayment was a camera designer in London in the late 19th century. He was a partner in Perken, Son and Rayment. He patented a design for a way of fastening the front standard of a bellows camera in place on the baseboard (Perken sold cameras to Rayment's Patent).[1][2]

Rayment was a director of Paul's Animatographe Ltd., a very short-lived company, presumably intended to make cinema equipment; it appears the company never traded, however.[3]
