Ah yes, the famous gold snakeskin LX. I wonder if anyone on this forum will buy it? We should start a pool.

For some reason every time I imagine myself with this camera in public, I think I should also get a gold-capped front tooth, wear a fedora and carry a gold-knobbed walking stick.

It's the camera of choice for Snoop Dogg.

But honestly I think it's kind of ugly. Like the snake-skin Leicas. No, what I want is a Sovjet manufactured camera with ultra-conservative design. Like the Fed-3. That's something to drool over folks! - Classic Cameras

That's the limited run they made for the Japanese market for some event or other, isn't it? I guess they're collectible, if you like things that are gaudy, over-the-top, and completely impractical.
