The Nikon Z7 Louis Vuitton Edition
Behold: the ultra-uber-limited Nikon Z7 Louis Vuitton edition. The 24K gold camera is wrapped in soft albino buckskin covered with the luxury label’s famous LV monogram. Only 7 will be produced with each camera (bundled with a 24-70mm f/4S lens and exotic strap) priced at $7 million.
Photographer Boonlert Rojanaboworn, the operator of Nikon Club Thailand , created this Photoshopped faux special edition camera as a joke for his community of camera enthusiasts. Nikon Rumors then picked it up , causing Nikon photographers around the Web to balk.
But there are actually prior examples of real limited edition gold Nikon cameras.
In 1984, Nikon released a 24K gold Nikon FA , producing 2,000 units to commemorate receiving a prestigious camera prize.
In 2014, the luxury gadget company Brikk unveiled a $41,395 24K gold Nikon Df kit .
Just two months later, Nikon unveiled its own gold-adorned version of the Nikon Df, producing 1,600 of the cameras priced around $2,700.
But if you were ready to pull out your wallet and buy this Louis Vuitton edition Nikon Z7, sorry — Nikon almost certainly won’t be releasing this camera anytime soon.
