Victoria Beckham used a Leica Digilux 2 digital camera to turn the tables on the paparazzi while out shopping during Milan Fashion Week. There was just one tiny problem for the wife of the England football captain. She inadvertently provided a perfect photo opportunity for the press snappers by leaving her lens cap on.

Posh was spotted pointing the 5.24-million pixel compact out of a car window while out shopping in the Italian capital with designer Roberto Cavalli.

Pictures of the former Spice Girl getting to grips with the £1,300 kit are now being snapped-up by a number of women?s magazines and it is understood to be selling for a considerable sum after appearing in several national newspapers.

Leica launched the Digilux 2 last year. Features include manual settings, pop-up flash and a Leica DC Vario-Summicron f/2-2.4 ASPH lens designed to deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 28-90mm lens.
