Stop or I’ll Shoot … Your Picture


Tamarkin Photographica will hold an auction of rare cameras on January 28, and the item that has gotten the most attention is an original Leica Gun with 400mm Telyt lens.

Writes Louis Ramirez of Gizmodo:

While it looks like it can scare the pants off of the meanest DSLR out there, I can’t imagine you’d have much luck getting your subjects to sit still when shooting with it.

Tamarkin, based in New York, expects the camera to fetch from $35,000 to $65,000.

The auction will be held live and also on eBay Live Auctions. The auction catalog can be viewed on the Tamarkin Web site, at www.liveauctioneers.com, and at eBay Live Auctions.
