About Us

Our Cameraland store has now closed after nearly 30 years of trading from the Royal Arcade see below.

Cameraland was established in 1991 and opened in November of that year at 36 Royal Arcade, Cardiff. Today, we still offer the highest standards of service, advice and expert knowledge to all our customers.

The opening was a particularly poignant one for MD Clive Brooks, his photographic career began in the Cameraland store, formerly Craely’s Studios, as a 16 year old school leaver in 1970 going on to achieve with Craely’s a “City & Guilds in General Photography”.

Cameraland is embracing the digital age by continuing to show its dedication to service, advice, expert knowledge and outstanding customer service which is underpinned by our competitive online and in-store pricing and stock availability.

Here in Cardiff’s oldest arcade you will find the oldest Camera Store in Cardiff with the very best offers in the world of photography in-store and now online. Run by friendly knowledgeable staff, ready to help you with any decisions you may need to make on purchasing equipment or our services, well displayed and with clear competitive pricing.

 We only supply genuine UK officially sourced products so you can have the confidence and the support not only from us at Cameraland, but also the UK supplier/manufacturer as well as their service centres.
