This is too funny. Longtime readers might remember that we awarded the palm for the "World's ugliest camera" in the Sam Memorial Dog Camera Award, in 2006. The winner (and still champion) was the Simmons Brothers Omega 120.
Given the huge number of cameras ever made, this pinnacle is rarified indeed.
Well, I think we have a subcategory winner for the 2000s...this delightful horror is the Brikk Nikon Dƒ, which costs $41,395 and is for those who like to flaunt their wealth and bad taste in equal measure. The plating is 24-carat gold and the leather is stingray skin. What? I said stingray skin.
Limited to 77 copies, which is fine as long as I never have to see two or more at once.
Brikk normally sells gold-plated i-Phones and gold-plated versions of other smartphones to people who have never had lots of money before and don't know how to behave. I kid, I kid...no hate mail, please, gold-plated smartphone users—yours looks good.

Correction: Sorry about the bad link earlier. Fixed now. Blogging really is like being the helmsman of a ship—you can't leave your post for more than a few minutes or bad things can happen.
