As phone cameras get better and better, fewer people seem to be using the traditional snapper to take pictures, and not just because your standard SLR doesn’t have the ability to upload your shots immediately to Instagram.
So old-fangled cameras need to do something to stand out. How about a bit of 24k gold and the skin of a strange sea animal?
Brikk, a company that specialises in making ordinary electronic goods extraordinarily fancy, is selling a Nikon Df with a Nukkor 14-24f/2.8 lens gussied up with 24k yellow gold on the metal and plastic parts and stingray leather on all the bits in between. It is a camera for those who want their equipment to grab as much attention as their shots.
While there are only 77 being made, don’t worry too much about them selling out before you get a chance to grab your wallet as they’re going for a hefty $41,395, or just under £26,000. But they do come with a gold carry case, so that’s quite good value really.
