It happened at the WestLicht Photographica auction in Vienna, coincidentally also the home of Lomography HQ. The prototype 0-series Leica 35mm camera sold for a staggering €2.16 million (or £1.73 million); one of only 25 editions produced for testing in 1923, the world-record camera is thought to be one of only 12 to have survived.

WHERE IS THE SPEED? Probably some of us are satisfied with the LC-A+ (hell yeah, its another form of satisfaction) but I get quite irritated with over exposed or under exposed result swhen taking pictures with this honorable player. When you use flash, it always burns your subject's skin tone or any still life objects. This is quite problematic for having appropriate exposure. But after some trial and error, I think we can trick the shutter speed of the LC-A+ (hohoho)!
I have been eyeing the La Sardina camera a couple of times but nothing caught my eyes until the La Sardina "The Guvnor" Edition came along.
