Limited edition gold camera is adorned with lizard skin

$12,000 24-carat gold Nikon camera up for sale on eBay

A 24-carat gold camera previously only available in Japan has been posted for sale on eBay.

The Nikon FA Gold is one of 2,000 limited edition gold-plated models released in commemoration of winning the 1984 ‘Camera Grand Prix’ prize, according to Nikon’s description.

The special version of the FA replaces previously silver-coloured parts with 24-carat gold plating, and the original leather cover with lizard skin.

Hosted on eBay for $12,000 (£7,320) – with the price currently $4,800 (£2,900) as part of eBay’s sale on film cameras – the seller claims that the film camera has never been used before and is one of the rarest film cameras available.
