Film Foto Forever

Founded in 1980, we specialize in professional photographic equipment, especially all film cameras built before 1976. Our mission is to preserve and promote the use of non-digital, fully mechanical cameras and the art of black and white film processing as well as silver halide printing. 


Welcome to Film Foto Forever's online store. We specialize in selling 100% mechanical film cameras. Mechanical cameras are made up of gears, springs, cams and many other intricate parts. Because of this, they do not rely on batteries or computer chips to be able to capture a picture. Much like a Rolex watch, with proper care and maintenance, 100% mechanical cameras can last a lifetime and may even be passed on to future generations. This is why we love and specialize in these types of cameras. With that being said, we also realize the merits and demand for more modern film cameras with electronic controls. It is because of this demand that we have two stores. The Film Foto Forever store offers 100% mechanical cameras with a 90 Day Limited Warranty. Our eBay store specializes in more modern film cameras with electronic controls. Because of the fragile nature of 20 and 30 year old electronics, we are unable to offer a warranty on these eBay store items.  

Although we have just started this website, we have been selling on eBay since February of 1998. We have sold close to 3000 items since then, and have maintained 100% positive feedback. You can see our  ore modern film cameras, feedback and ratings here. We strongly believe that film still has a place in photography. Film cameras are used and cared for by people with a true passion for the art and science of film photography. We realize that many aspects of photography have evolved into the digital format, but film will never be 100% replaced. We know that's why you are here. You are here because you still have a passion for film photography. We don't want you as a customer, we want you as a repeat customer. Therefore we try our absolute best to be completely honest and accurate in our descriptions. If there are any flaws, we point them out. Unless otherwise noted, all cameras, lenses and accessories are sold in good working order. More specifically, when you buy a camera or lens from us, you will receive it in fully functional condition, ready to shoot. As far as cosmetics are concerned, we try to put several pictures of the item up, so you may judge for yourself the condition. Again, we will try our best to point out any flaws or defects. Thank you for shopping with us!
