This camera would get lost in Ft. Knox

The 24k Minot Carat has diamonds on its lense

Compared with MP3 players and cell phones , digital cameras are often left out of the fashion party. But Minox is out to show that cameras are people too. Or something like that.

The DC 1011 Carat is clad in 24k gold and has a lens that's ringed with 10 diamonds. True, they're small (.02 carats each), but the road to blingdom is a long one, and you've got to start somewhere.

The more boring among us might want to know that this is also a functioning camera, with 2.5-inch display and 32MB internal memory for photos and video. Electronista says the Carat is selling for $1,700, with its own wooden case, of course.
