Who We Are

We are a used/new retail camera store which was founded 30 years ago by a college professor and his students. Our goal was to make a living at something we enjoyed and we have been lucky enough to do just that all of these years.

Part of our aim was to give people the chance to purchase quality equipment at a reasonable price so that they could experience all sorts of camera gear. We give customers a place to sell or trade their used equipment as well as buy new equipment.

Columbus Camera Group is a good first stop to search for unusual items or common items at a good price. Lighting, backgrounds, cameras, lenses, tripods and all sorts of accessories pass through our store from week to week. Whether you are an amateur or professional we will try to find you the equipment you need for a good price.

Our employees are camera people who can help explain the equipment and help you find the tools you need. If you are looking for something we don’t have our buyers will look for you and notify you when we find it.

Our company life has straddled two centuries and although we look to the future we have not forgotten film and the classic equipment that supported it. Hasselblad, Nikon, Leica, Beseler, Omega, Minolta, Topcon, Retina, Kodak, Gossen, Zeiss, etc, are all familiar names and we enjoy connecting a new generation to the beautiful gems of the 20th century, much of which can be accommodated to the digital world.

So if you are an enthusiast or think you might have the photo “bug” definitely come see us. We will help you turn an idea into an image.
