The Camera Collector
It all began in a flea market in Vietnam. With the purchase of a Polaroid 80 Highlander, Samer Halwany started his camera collection journey – a journey that has led him to Cairo, Paris, Beirut, London and Istanbul (to name just a few) and resulted in a trove of over 700 vintage cameras. An expensive and time-consuming endeavor, vintage camera collecting may not be for everyone, but Samer's enthusiasm and commitment are enough to get anyone interested. Take a look at some of his most prized possessions and top treasure hunting tips.

"Through my experience of 16 years of collecting film cameras, my best camera hunt has always been in flea markets. I find my uppermost pleasure in walking through crowded streets and old souks searching for vintage cameras."

One of the most exciting things about vintage camera collection is bringing old contraptions back to life – carefully cleaning and repairing before filling them up with fresh new film so you can capture contemporary life through the lens of a piece of history. Such film and camera combinations may never have been seen before! Why not try out our most unique color-shifting LomoChrome Films with your antique analogue cameras.
