Portable Vacuum Cleaner in the Shape of a Nikon 70-200mm Lens

Of all the photography-related novelty products we’ve seen so far, this one has to be one of the most bizarre. It’s a hand-held vacuum cleaner designed to look just like a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G VR lens. The device can draw its power from either the cigarette lighter socker in your car or the USB port on your computer.

For an added dash of bizarro, here’s what the product’s description says when passed through Google Translate:

Handy cleaner handy and can be powered from the cigarette lighter socket SB ★ design of the lens of the camera type unusual outstanding usability in 410g lightweight also very active in the outdoors even in the room! [Product details] 8.4 × width 34.5 × height 4.5cm Size: Length (approx.) 410g: weight [Product Description Pet House ♪ super easy assembly light yellow color perfect cute dogs (even to Nyan-chan) is. I use both indoors and outdoors! [Product details] 53 × 39 × 52cm: Size 5.2kg: weight

Nikon is reportedly planning to bundle this lens with future shipments of the D600 (just kidding, just kidding! we couldn’t resist.)

You can pick up one of these strange things over on Amazon Japan for ¥2,890, or about $35.

    WTF. I’m certainly not the only person who can think of less niche photography related products that have yet to see the light of day.

    the canon version has better performance in high-dust situations.

    Not what I had in mind when I asked for lens cleaning service.

    Does it have VR to aid accurate dust removing? Wouldn’t want my shaky hands to cause scratches on that sensor.

    “Sweetheart, why did you put a vacuum cleaner in my camera bag?”

  • 432423423

    yep you only have to connect it to a D600

  • madmax

    What about collecting dust from inside your camera with a compatible mount blower/vacuum cleaner?

    Just use this lens with a D600 for your day to day dust busting.
