About London Camera Exchange

London Camera Exchange can trace its origins back to the 1950’s when the founders acquired premises in Guildford’s Tunsgate from which they operated a photography studio. The owners of Tunsgate Studios soon noticed that their customers were very interested in the equipment used in the studio and even went so far as to sell some of their old equipment. When customers started to offer other cameras in part exchange for newer or more expensive models the business, LCE, as it exists today, was born.

Very special thanks to these photographic brands who have made this competition possible. Click on their logos below to discover more about products available at London Camera Exchange.
