Sometimes cliches are perfect sense … following the old adage “old but good”, one rare, some say the oldest Nikon camera, was sold at a price of nearly half a million dollars …
There are many reasons that this camera is special. For starters, this is the third camera that the brand has ever produced, made in April 1948.
Furthermore, although this camera has so many years, still comes with the original F2 Nikkor H objective, as well as original and very rare case. What’s more, on this camera stands the inscription “made in occupied Japan”, which definitely gives us some clues about the time in which it was made. Although it was originally presented as an ordinary Nikon camera, later named Nikon One, that in later years got successors in the form of M and S model.
This unique camera has the classic black and silver body, while the case comes created from the skin in a dark brown color. Although the Nikon One originally cost $190,000, its starting price at auction was only $95,000, it broke all records and reached $406,000.
