We are proud to be a Leica Premier Plus Dealership, the pinnacle and final word in Leica stockist. Boasting the complete range of Leica products, from the smallest compact camera to the latest S body, to both supply and demonstrate in store.

Alongside the cameras, the shop also offers a wide range of used Leica equipment, as well as accessories that include Leica manuals, books, Manfrotto tripods, Metz flash guns, and Billingham bags. A full repair and servicing facility is also offered, and customers’ own Leica equipment can be sold outright or on a commission basis.

All new cameras on sale at Red Dot Cameras are sourced from Leica UK and carry a full world-wide guarantee plus the unique Leica UK passport scheme.
Red Dot Cameras is run by Ivor and Elaine Cooper, with the help of two knowledgeable Leica users Alex Wheatley and Brian Parkes.

Ivor has been selling cameras in London for more than 18 years, having worked previously for some of London’s top classic camera companies. He says, “Leicas have been my life, I’m an avid user of the cameras and have probably sold more new models during the past 15 years than anyone else in the UK. So it was my mission to open my own store dedicated exclusively to Leica, offering an unrivalled expertise in all things bearing the famous red dot.
