 Re. 11-Crore Camera Sets World Record

According to The Westlicht gallery in Austria, a camera used by a photographer who had documented the life of artist Pablo Picasso has sold for a record price of $2.19 million. The gallery says that the Leica m3d camera belonged to David Douglas Duncan, former photographer for LIFE magazine and a close friend of Picasso.

 

 Manufactured in 1955, the camera is one of the four ever made, and the price is a world record for a commercially produced camera.
