Ranging from “a bit pricey” to “why is it encrusted with diamonds?”, these are some of the most ludicrously expensive cameras to ever be bought with actual money
First up, an honourable mention has to go to the Leica Q. While it’s nowhere near as costly as the other cameras on the list, at £2,900 it does hold the distinction of currently being the most expensive compact camera on the market, edging out the Sony RX1R, which originally retailed at £2,599.
How much? £2,900, or about the same price as a used 2007 Ford Focus
This rare, police-issue Japanese camera went under the hammer for thousands back in 2013. It was apparently designed for policemen to use for photographing protests, which presumably calmed volatile situations right down.
How much? £9,000, or about the same price as 79 actual rifles from Walmart.
