Well it is amazing what turns up in old sheds ( it just never seems to be mine). This 1839 French Daguerreotype camera goes up for auction on the 22nd of May with German Auction house Westlicht.

No only has it been authenticated as the oldest camera in existence it has a pretty cool history too.
Owned originally by the Godfather of the founder of Schneider optical works!


Ready to bid, the sale price expected to be around 2-4 million dollars!
