Frequently Asked Questions


Do you ship overseas?

Yes, we ship all over the world. Shipping costs will apply, and will be added at checkout. 

What shipping carriers do you use?

We use USPS Priority, Priority Express International, and Global Postal Shipping.


What type of film should I buy?

It really depends on the style that you like!

If you've never shot film before, I would recommend purchasing something cheaper to
start with just to get a feel for your new camera and what you like to shoot.

Some great budget-friendly color film options are Kodak
Color Plus, Kodak Gold, and Fuji Superia. For black and white, you can't go wrong with Ilford HP5, Kodak Tri-X, and Ilford Delta 400!

If you have shot film before and feel pretty comfortable, Portra 400 is a beautiful, finer grain film.

In addition, I always recommend going on Instagram and searching through different film hashtags to see what you like. Everyone is different.
Have fun with it!

Are our cameras beginner-friendly?

Yes! We like to think that all of our cameras are beginner, intermediate, and advanced shooter friendly but we DO have
recommendations for our favorite cameras for new photographers. 


We highly recommend the Pentax K1000, Canon AE-1, Nikon EM, and Olympus OM-1 for beginners. 

How do we grade our cameras?

Our cameras go through a meticulous inspection process where they are tested and cleaned. Everything we sell is in 100% working condition.

We break the appearance of our cameras into three conditions: very good, good, and average.

A "very good" body will most likely look as close to it would have to its original state when first manufactured with very slight signs of wear.

〰 A “good” body will also look nice but have some
additional potential cosmetic wear such as worn down metal or small scratches somewhere on the body.

〰 An “average” body will be a more severe case of cosmetic wear like black specs, deeper scratches, or lines in the eye prism.

None of these cosmetic blemishes will impact your film or the mechanics of your camera!

Why are there black specks in my viewfinder?

Black specks are 100% normal and expected with vintage cameras! Our cameras are anywhere from 20-60 years old and no matter how much we can clean and inspect them, some pieces of dust just won't go away! But don't worry, they aren't harmful at all and won't impact the quality of your images.


Can I return my product?

Yes! We offer a 30-day, no-questions-asked return or exchange policy on cameras that have been purchased with no signs of new damage or wear.

Please keep in mind that these cameras are anywhere from 20-60 years old and have likely been used and loved by multiple owners before you. Though we try our best to keep them padded and safe, sometimes they break during shipping. So just let us know and we will exchange it for a new one!
