I know what you might be thinking, the price of this camera? Made by the company whose cameras were the first on the moon, will be almost enough to finance your own personal moonshot. The price is somewhere upwards of $30K to $40K (we can own a Mercedes Benz C-class at that price) ;-).

Wondering how the pictures will look like when you are using this camera? Take a look below:

So, what next? Dreaming to own one? I know everyone of us want to have this beauty with brains and at the same time we all know that beauty and brains does not come cheap.

All the best for all our future endeavors. We never know, one day we can own this beauty!!

Till then let's keep giving our best and Happy Clicking :-).
