Here at Merchant City Cameras we offer a wide variety of services including our own inhouse repair specialist for film camera equipment. Simply bring your equipment into the store and we'll let you know if a repair is possible and give you a free estimate before any work is carried out. Unfortunatly we cannot carry out camcorder or digital camera repairs.
We have recently introduced digital SLR sensor cleaning, this is invaluable if you have dust or marks on your sensor both of which can waste even the most professional of photographs. Just bring your DSLR into the store with a fully charged battery and we will clean the sensor for you, as this service takes approximately an hour we ask that you contact us beforehand to make an appointment.

We have a big range of classic cameras from box to folding and lots more in between. Our classic range vary in condition, and are price accordingly, some cameras have simply seized due to many years of not being used. This can sometimes be fixed by some simple maintenance, firing the shutter on a regular basis on different settings usually does it. Most of our classics cameras are sold for nostalgic or decorative purposes, many because you cannot get the film for the cameras anymore. We check all classics before we list them as much as we can and if we find any fault we tell you in the description. Unfortunately we do not guarantee full working order on our classic cameras.
We offer full guarantee on all products sold:
New Equipment 12 months manufacturers warranty
Refurbished Equipment 6 month manufacturers warranty
Used Equipment 6 months warranty (3 months on items under £50 or flash guns)
If you find any fault with the equipment please get in touch and we will help in anyway we can.
