Expert Cameras & Optical Equipment

Deluxe Leicas are my favourite, but I also like to include Kodak and Agfa cameras in my auctions

Ed van Mil
A simple Agfa Clack, a gift from his father, was all it took for Ed van Mil to get the collecting bug. Through friends and acquaintances, markets, fairs and antique shops, his collection of Kodak cameras grew until it numbered over one thousand. It was no surprise he was named European Collector of the Year in 2011. A title to be proud of. Meanwhile, Ed has also been the secretary of the Fotografica Association for years. Becoming an auctioneer at Catawiki was the logical next step for this undeniable expert in cameras.

With 25 years’ experience, Ed has built up a huge network in the field. He knows many suppliers personally, which helps him assess the lots on offer. He would really like to see a deluxe Leica from the 1960s turn up. There is a huge market for these cameras. Kodak and Agfa cameras also do well with collectors. “The technique is what attracts people, everything still works completely mechanically. These cameras have an air of nostalgia about them.”
