These Polaroid Cameras Are Worth $100+ (Plus More Classic Camera Values)

How much are classic cameras worth?

Classic camera values range from worthless up to $8,000 or more, depending on factors like brand, condition, film format and popularity.

Many are worth around $15, though it’s impossible to place an average value on classic cameras. The most expensive camera ever sold at auction was a Leica 0-series No. 122, which sold at a March 2018 Westlicht Photographica auction in Vienna, Austria for $2.95 million. It was a 35mm camera produced as a prototype for testing in 1923 and never intended for commercial use.
