Limited-edition Canon G12 sports lipstick stain

Pucker up! Acclaimed fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg has specially designed 50 units of the Canon PowerShot G12 exclusively for online retailer AhaLife.

The limited-edition advanced compact will set you back $600 (a normal version costs $499). It ships with a case also designed by Furstenberg.

Considering the designer is a legend in the fashion industry, $600 is a small price to pay compared with the limited-edition Titanium Leica M9, which costs a pocket-blowing $29,938.

Canon paired it with a 14.1-megapixel 1/2.3-inch type CCD sensor, which is the standard size you'd find in any point-and-shoot camera.
