There’s nothing like capturing those cherished memories on film. That glorious day at the beach, your cat snoozing in the sun, the family portrait, complete with matching holiday sweaters. But why do it with just any old camera. Now you can point and shoot – with diamonds.

Tennis glam girl, Maria Sharapova, was at New York’s Pier 17 yesterday to debut five, Canon Powershot Digital ELPH cameras – each encrusted with 88 white diamonds. That’s 2.22 carats of bling. The $12,000 cameras are not for sale, alas, but will be awarded to five lucky winners via a nationwide sweepstakes.

In the meantime, New York City dwellers can swing down to the South Street Seaport locale today to take pictures with the leggy tennis champ. If her US Open performance is anything like this year’s Wimbledon, she might want to take this spokesmodel thing more seriously.
