The Fieldings camera house record is a 1960 Leica M3 35mm rangefinder camera. This camera was found languishing  in a big box of mixed cameras, it went on to make £3,800.

Fieldings' most memorable find is a ‘Darth Vadar’ camera, the Konica AiBorg. It was released in the early 1990s and nicknamed the Darth Vadar camera because of its very unusual design. Not the most valuable of cameras, but certainly fun and unusual looking.

Mark and Rachel's dream find would be Russian cold war and KGB cameras. A real feat of camera engineering, found in briefcases, cigarette packets, umbrellas and ladies handbags, the stories these cameras could tell are fascinating...
