Company Profile

Atik Camera’s mission is to provide professionals and enthusiasts with the perfect imaging solution.

Steve Chambers and Rui Tripa launched the business over fifteen years ago following their own frustrating search for astronomical imaging equipment. The type of camera they wanted was simply not available in a realistic price range – so they set out to design it themselves.

From small beginnings, our company has grown rapidly. Utilising our extensive expertise in low-light, stare mode imaging, we work with world leading organisations to bring our low-read noise OEM imaging solutions to life science and industrial applications. Additionally, Atik’s astrophotography cameras are now sold across Europe, USA and Canada, as well as Australia, Japan and Malaysia.

We have continuously developed and refined a range of robust and reliable equipment to deliver superior performance in an extremely specialised and demanding field.

Our cameras enable enthusiasts and professionals to achieve greater sensitivity and longer exposure times – resulting in better image quality.

Atik has also developed highly-acclaimed software that is included with our cameras. This software is compatible with all cameras in the Atik range, making it easy to upgrade. Regular software updates mean that you can enjoy new features and functions as our technology evolves.

Atik is based in the city of Norwich, in England, where we design and develop our cameras and support our customers; and production takes place at our ISO 9001 accredited facilities in Lisbon, Portugal.

We continue to work closely with our customers to develop durable, user friendly products that remain consistent and reliable for years to come.
