Many of you already know the Photojojo newsletter and Web site
for its sometimes wacky but often useful photography tips and DIY projects. The site also has a popular online store
and several of the newest products are so perfectly conceived they deserve a place on every camera-centric’s holiday gift list. Here are my favorites:
1. The Canon Lens Mug
(above). What could be better than sipping your caffeinated poison of choice out of a lookalike Canon 24 – 105 mm lens? Taking an even bigger gulp out of a Canon 70 – 200 mm white telephoto zoom. The store also offers a Nikon Lens Mug
2. Canon or Nikon Lens Pillow
. The next time you’re stuck at the airport or on a break, just grab your “huggable” 50 mm prime lens pillow and catch up on your sleep.
3. Shot Glass Lens Set
. No comment, though they could easily do double duty storing paper clips or thumbtacks on your desk.
4. Wood Camera iPhone 4/4s Case
. Go sustainable and old school with one simple case.
5. iPhone Lens Dial
. Create a whole kaleidoscope of look references for your next project.
6. Vintage Camera Mobile
. Those with a new generation to indoctrinate will want to hang this lovely vintage camera mobile in the nursery. After all, babies respond to black-and-white contrasts before they respond to color.
7. The (Yes, It’s Really Real) iPhone SLR Mount
. If you’re crazy enough to try it, why not hook your SLR lens to your iPhone 4s?
