About us

Camera Rescue is an organisation from Finland dedicated to preserving cameras for future generations. So far we have rescued just above 46 000 cameras, but we are just getting started. From one to thousands at a time, we rescue cameras from any time period old or new, working or broken. Trade in your old or unwanted camera equipment for cash, and help us with our goal of rescuing 100,000 cameras by 2020. 

With five different locations in Finland, the companies under Camera Rescue work together with the same vision. In the centralized Camera Rescue Center in Tampere Finland daily over 50 cameras are processed to find a new home. Picture from a summer weekly meeting at the Rescue Center showroom in 2018 by Juho
