Most people use digital these days, but many photographers prefer to go old school and use film cameras. If you’re a fan of old school cameras, you might want to check out a listing on eBay for a Nikon FA camera. This special model is a limited edition version that comes with a 24k gold plated finish and lizard skin. That’s a crazy combination.
The seller is asking for $12,000 for the camera. The eBay listing says that it is used, while the description says that this is a camera that has never been used before. Either way, this is a pretty sweet camera for the photography enthusiast with some disposable income.
Nikon’s description of the camera is: “In commemoration of winning the “Camera Grand Prix” prize, Nikon FA Gold was released in Japan (Nippon). This was based on the FA, and its silver color parts such as top and bottom covers are gold-plated and the lizard skin was used for leather cover.” Only 2,000 units were made so this is a real score for Nikon fans who want something special to brag about and sit on their mantle like a trophy.
