As Dr. Seuss puts it, ‘Why fit in when you were born to stand out?’ Well, that’s pretty much true of the modern-day design-obsessed photography world: with crowds going mad over high-end cameras, innovative mounts and other creative camera-related props, it seems it’s no longer enough for your footage masterpieces to stand out – your gear has to show off some mean style too. And with the new state-of-the-art 24K Gold Nikon DF Camera by Brikk, the famous manufacturer of lavish takes on popular electronics, you get to do just that – blow your own horn, and in 24K gold too.
A perfect camera for the average contemporary King Midas, the latest release by Brikk transforms the standard Nikon DF into a genuine work of art. Finished in pure 24-carat gold and outfitted with some stingray leather accents on the flash area, grip, zoom and focus rings for superior style, the opulent camera preserves all its well-known Nikon DF odds and ins spec-wise, such as the 3.2-inch LCD display and 16.2-inch FX-format CMOS sensor.
Equipped with gold-coated Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens with front cap and packed inside a custom hard-shell Zero Halliburton case with some additional 24K touches, the Brikk 24K Gold Nikon DF camera kit is the outcome of the company’s year-long development, designing and engineering efforts. The 4-5 microns thick dual-layer gold plating is applied on top of the five-layered surface on the camera body previously treated with diverse metals for maximum durability and superior class, and the unit is then hand-polished to a perfect 24K yellow shine.
In addition to the camera body, the Lux 24K Nikon DF kit also includes a rechargeable battery, quick charger, USB cable, lens hood, eyepiece, body cap and rear cap, rubber eyecap, as well as a fancy camera strap and hot shoe cover. In the box, you also get the necessary photography software and a one-year limited warranty by Brikk. Only exclusive 77 pieces will be handcrafted – which is quite understandable, considering the rather prohibitive $41,395 price tag. If it’s any comfort for future owners, Brikk announced that a part of the sale profits will be donated to charity for the suffering populations worldwide. So, why settle with the ordinary if you can have the premium? Brikk 24K Gold Nikon DF is just that – a piece of top-of-the-crop camera gear created for the sole purpose of providing you with the most prestigious photography style. [via]
