With the upcoming new gadgets or updated version of the old models, one cannot overshadow the beauty of age-old and conventional. To exemplify this, today we have a Bell & Howell model 2709 motion picture camera available for the auction on 25 July 2007. Mind you, this is not an ordinary camera as it has an established reputation of personal movie camera used for Charlie Chaplin for the screening of his numerous classic films.
All set to invite all eyeballs, Samantha Ryan, Christie’s saleroom assistant poses with the camera. The expected amount generated out of its sales is $140,000 – $180,000.
So, are you planning to buy one? Well, if you cannot afford to grab it then at least respect this camera by visiting the Christie’s auction hall for window-shopping only.
