    I thought the price of gold has gone down?

    2000 are stated to have been made.

    I wonder who bought those. I mean I know of people buying special edition cameras, but lightmeters?

    There is no way I would buy a piece of jewelry disguised as a camera (or a light meter).

    Only 2000 made! That makes it about as rare as a "limited edition" digital pigment print.

    It looks as if it had been left in a small room full of heavy smokers for about a year.

    Isn't everything on the bay "very rare" and if it doesn't work it must be "vintage"!

    Gold has definitely lost its shine, down around 15% in a month and still falling. He can't be a futures trader, obviously...
    This thing is only plated; if it were real 18k you'd be paying thousands for it and the weight ... .
    I am not taken in by his florid spiel. Sounds just the type to make a deal that sounds too good to be true.

    If Tony Montana was a photographer, this is the meter I imagine he'd use.

    Na. It's a meter for Donald Trump. All show and no go. He can meter is bad comb over.

    It needs a gold chain, not the cheap black nylon lanyard. Just the right amount of bling for a hairy chest.

    Bling, n. Those shiny bits which the human magpie (homo ignoramus, v. vulgaris) uses to adorn it's person and decorate it's nest.
