Hopefully, Owa Odighizuwa’s fake photo was a keeper, because it certainly cost enough real money.

The second-year defensive end was fined $12,154 for pretending to take a picture of Landon Collins in the end zone after Collins’ 44-yard interception return for a touchdown in the Giants’ win over the Rams last week in London.

He’s the second Giant this season to get fined by the league for miming a photo shoot. After Victor Cruz scored his touchdown in Week 1, Odell Beckham Jr. was fined for snapping a make-believe picture of it. Beckham also was fined $12,154.

The difference, of course, is that Beckham makes much more money than Odighizuwa, who earns roughly $30,000 per week. Take away taxes (plus international taxes for playing in London) and his agent’s fees, and Odighizuwa took quite a bath for his Kodak moment.

So what kind of actual camera could Odighizuwa have bought for 12 grand? Well, on eBay in 2013, there was a limited-edition 24-karat gold Nikon camera for sale for $12,000. And in June, Hasselblad launched a mirrorless camera for $12,000.

Instead, it cost Odighizuwa just as much for a fake camera.

And he doesn’t even own the negatives!
