One-Off Jony Ive Leica Camera is Lustworthy, Even More Unaffordable Than Apple Gear

By Gerald Lynch on at

Leica cameras and Apple hardware are pricey at the best of times, so when news comes in that Apple's design maestro Jony Ive has worked his magic on a one-off Leica for a RED charity auction, it's only ever going to cause pain for your bank balance.

Expected to rake in somewhere around $500,000 (£312,000), it's a special edition Leica M, with an anodised aluminium casing protecting a 24MP CMOS sensor. The perfect accompaniment for an iFanboy's aluminium MacBook, right? If you've ever hoped to see an Apple iCamera, this is probably as close as you're going to get. [BBC]
