    Light Meter Bling!

    This one's too funny not to pass on:

    I've always found gold editions tacky, but this one is just cute: the humble, workaday light meter clad in gilded shoes!
    Using film since before it was hip.

    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.

    Even the manual shows it that way.
    That person seems to mix up models. At its best.

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