Minutes of the Cardiff Camera Club general meeting held at the YMCA Station Terrace, Cardiff, on September 7th 1939, stating that the proposed syllabus of lectures had been abandoned "in view of the outbreak of war".

Cardiff Camera Club is one of the oldest photographic clubs in the UK. It was established in 1896 when a group of individuals decided they shared a common interest in wanting to learn more about the emerging science of photography. The first meeting was held in the Angel Hotel on the corner of Castle Street / Westgate Street and they managed their events from an office in Bute Street.

Throughout successive generations the members of Cardiff Camera Club have endeavoured to meet those same objectives: To provide a sociable and friendly atmosphere for people interested in photography.

The Club holds regular weekly meetings. For 25 years, from 1991 to 2016, the members were meeting at the Trinity Centre in Adamsdown; they moved to their new location in Rumney in July 2016.
