Sell Your Old and Vintage Analog Film Cameras

Buy Film Canada is Canada’s biggest online film retailer, and we’re branching out into used cameras. If you have used items you’d like to sell us, feel free to get in touch.

We’re interested in most brands of film camera – Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Contax, Hasselblad, Leica, Olympus, you name it – but we do have to be somewhat selective, so we can’t guarantee we’ll take everything, however if we can’t buy your camera, then we’ll send you an email with advice about what you might want to do to sell it on your own, and when possible, we will give an opinion on what you should ask for it, price-wise. (Legal fine print: This email is an opinion, and does not constitute an official appraisal and should not be used as such).

The process is as follows: Email andrew@buyfilm.ca with as much info as you have about the camera, as well as clear, well-lit photos of the camera (multiple angles please). If it’s something we think we can buy from you, the next steps will involve us making an offer, and if you accept, you will mail the camera to us.

Email us with any questions at the same address as above.

C-41 Developing Kits Available for Sale Now

Since I started this site, the most common request I’ve received has been for C-41 developing kits. I’m finally found a decent way to get them to Canada, and they’re in the store now.

The kits are standard Unicolor kits, and contain several pouches of powdered chemicals. These are the kits that almost everybody uses to develop colour film. There are other kits available (mostly in Europe from what I’ve seen) that provide the chemicals in liquid form, but these cost a lot more, and as far as I can tell, they don’t really have any advantage. These Unicolor kits produce excellent results, and I don’t honestly know what advantage there could be to be honest.

I plan to have some blog posts up soon covering the process of home developing C-41, so keep your eyes open to this blog, but feel free to email support@buyfilm.ca in the meantime with any questions on how these work, what other equipment you need, etc.
