This page provides a list of photography shops that sell classic cameras, used or second hand camera equipment and accessories and the like. The aim of this list is to make the search for collectible and classic cameras easier when visiting unfamiliar cities during your travels. Please check the actual address and opening times using the shop's website (if given) before actually going to the shop. Keep in mind that the market in collectible and second-hand cameras is fluid, and that some shops may have gone out of business since they were last visited by one of the contributors.
