Surely this is a mistake, a $257,000 camera at Bintel

Here it is:

If your looking to spend your Lotto winnings.

After a quick google search, it would appear not...

Found it in the US for a cool $173,250... can't comment on import duties or other costs for a company to get these in & market them in OZ but, purely on exchange rate there is a $30k gap... not in our favour...

I like the fact that Bintel's page is saying "more on the way", sounds like a good way to bankrupt the company. In fairness it does not appear to be in stock yet.
They are accepting Zip Pay Later, hmm over how many years?

I think the price of this is just that high so that the rest of us can show our significant others how cheap the stuff we have is. Well played Bintel
