A CAMERA that snapped Picasso has sold for €1.7 million.

The most expensive camera in the world belonged to influential photojournalist, David Douglas Duncan.

The 96-year-old was a close friend of the Spanish artist and published hundreds of exclusive photos of him.

The Leica M3D, which attracted an opening bid of €150,000, was manufactured in 1955 and sold to a private buyer in Vienna.

The camera is one of only four ever made.
