Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain

The Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain was formed in 1977 when a group of collectors met together and decided that they wanted to meet regularly as part of a formal Club. The Photographic Collectors’ Club of Great Britain became a company limited by guarantee in October 2003 under the name of The Photographic Collectors’ Club International Ltd.

From those early beginnings the Club has grown into to around 1500 members located across Europe, America, Asia and Australasia. The Club imposes no restrictions on membership. The overwhelming majority of members are collectors but the Club also includes those who are involved in photographic history professionally including museum curators, dealers, publishers and practising photographers.

Small Battery Company for replacement and equivalent batteries. Also check out 7dayshop.com for price comparisons.

Subminiature Club is at http://www.subclub.org/. This is the web's primary source of information on all subminiature cameras - cameras with a frame format smaller than APS including half frame, 16mm and Minox formats but excluding stereo cameras. Some links fail. Pages are not updated very often - they don't need to be. Submissions do not appear and photographs of the cameras are often too small to get sufficient detail. The swap meet has been moved to the more modern approach of the Yahoo Groups. The site is sponsored by a number of sellers of Minox and other subminiature cameras but the site is independent off them. Set up by Joe McGloin as a collaborative forum with help from other shutterbugs. Joe has his own web site and runs Goathill supplying film to subminiature camera users.
