A Leica prototype camera produced in 1923 has sold for a record breaking 2.16m euros ($2.8 million) at an auction in Austria.

It becomes the world’s most expensive camera, and is one of just 25 models created for the original Leica A – the first commercially successful compact camera which used 35mm film.

Only 12 of the cameras are thought to have survived, with this one being purchased by an anonymous buyer.
The camera had an estimate sale price of 600,000 thousand euros, but the sale price was 1.8m euros by the end of the auction, the rest of the figure paid is made up of taxes and fees.
