Feast your eyes on the oldest and most expensive camera in the world. It's a Daguerreotype, named after the inventor Jacques Mande Daguerre and manufactured in Paris in September 1830 by Alphonse Giroux, the brother in law of the inventor of the camera. It sold for $800,000 back in 2007. It had been languishing sort of lost in a private collection in Germany and even has the original user manual it came with. Fantastic!!!
