Welcome to Aperture

At Aperture, we are specialists in second-hand Leica, Nikon, Hasselblad and other professional grade and collectible cameras. We offer film processing, scanning and camera repair services.

Since 2000, we have served professional photographers, enthusiasts, keen amateurs and collectors alike.

Digital cameras have made imaging convenient, efficient and more accessible. Many embrace traditional old-school photography using manual cameras, which allow a more disciplined approach to creating images. This can be appealing to those who value mechanical precision and feel. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a beautifully developed photo from a negative.
