Welcome to Snappin' Turtle Vintage

We specialise in taking vintage cameras that have seen better days and restoring them to their former glory with custom looks and a bit of TLC.

We have a range of cameras ready for re-homing in our shop – if you need any help or advice, please get in touch!



Unless specified on the listing, we only sell cameras that are in a usable condition, and that we would be happy to use ourselves. The condition of each product is described as accurately as possible, to make sure you are aware of any vintage quirks before buying! We don’t use a rating system for the condition of cameras, so please ensure you carefully examine the pictures, and get in touch with any questions.


Don’t see what you’re looking for in our shop? You can always get in touch to discuss custom orders if you have your heart set on a particular colour/style of finish. We are also happy to discuss customising your own camera!

Amazing experience, bought as a gift for my brother who loves photography but never used film. Helen included instructions on how to use the camera and a free roll of film so he could get started! Also she messaged me after noticing a fault on the camera to let me know that she made up a camera up to replace it that didn’t have any of the wear and tear the first one had. I’m definitely going to be getting a camera for myself soon 🙂

Been tracking this shop for a while, such attention to detail in every camera. The customisation really helps to make this piece feel unique. Certainly well worth the price, will be keeping my eyes open for more from this shop.
The camera also came with a free roll of film, which I thought was a lovely touch, allowing me to go out and start shooting immediately.
All in all, I can safely say i will be following snappinturtlevintage and their stock, in the hopes i can add more of their camera’s to my collection

The camera is amazing! Looks brand new and the detailing has been done to such a high standard. The free pack of film was a lovely suprise and has allowed me to begin practicing with the camera as soon as i got it. Shipping was faster then i expected and the contents of the box were very unique and fun to look through. 100% would recommend to anyone and would defintely buy again from here!

Amazing thank you, arrived really quick with a free roll of film, camera is like brand new!

Awesome camera! Clean, in great condition, and works like it was bought new. Is a gift for my girlfriend and was in tears with the whole thing. Her favorite color and favorite kind of camera. Plus it came with a special surprise! An old school fitted folding camera case! Ellen was quickly responsive with any questions I had and was able to help me get the camera to America quickly as well. Punctual, professional, and awesome all around. Will definitely be considering another camera from snappin turtle vintage.

I Love my trip 35! it came as pictured and looks absolutely beautiful. Ellen was also kind enough to include some neat stickers and a roll of film to get me started! extremely satisfied 🙂

Arrived on time, packaged well and with a lovely hand written note. A free roll of film was included so I can use my camera straight away!! Amazing service and would definitely recommend. 🙂

In great condition, it works too! Shall add a photo of what I got when I scan them in.
