After the enormous success of the Canon 70-200mm Coffee Mug, it was only a matter of time before Nikon-branded cups joined the party. Nikoneans can now rejoice — a 24-70mm coffee cup has just appeared on eBay as a pre-order for $50. It doesn’t appear that Nikon has anything to do with this 1:1 replica cup, but those who have been eagerly waiting for such a thing to appear can now pounce on this awesome (but unofficial) accessory.
Those who want longer focal length coffee cups can also buy a 70-200mm coffee cup for roughly the same price:
Update: Nikon is not affiliated with these cups in any way.
The graduating class of the BA photography program at the University College Falmouth needed to raise money for their end of the year show, so they decided to make and sell a cookbook. What’s neat is that each of the recipes was submitted by a famous contemporary photographer.
The resulting full color 100-page book is titled “Say Cheese?“, and features recipes from such notable photographers as Elina Brotherus, Richard Misrach, Alec Soth, Rineke Dijkstra, Tierney Gearon, Joachim Schmidt, Martin Parr, and Susan Derges.
If ordering from within the UK, the price is £9.95 (~$15) with shipping and handling included, and if you’re outside, the price is £14.95 (~$23).
Given how low the price is, this might make a great photography gift or collectible item. Imagine if we had a cookbook with recipes from famous historical photographers!

This past month Canon Canada ran a promotion where each purchase over $200 CAD came with a free collectible Canon Lens Travel Mug.
Not to be outdone, Canon HongKong is now offering a special collectible of its own: the EOS Digital SLR 50th Anniversary Stamp Box Set. The value of these collectible items are roughly in the same range (~$37), but the printers this promotion applies to are far more expensive than $200 CAD, with the cheaper one being $565.
These stamps were released last year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Canon single lens reflex cameras, and contains 20 stamps that each display one of Canon’s 20 SLR cameras made since 1959.
Supposedly only 3,000 of the box sets will ever be made, but it looks like they’re having a hard time getting rid of them at HK$280 (~$36), since they’re being bundled with pro printers now. If you happen to live in Hong Kong or know someone there, you can still purchase the stamps by themselves.
Update: If you’re outside Hong Kong and dying to get your hands on one of these sets, you can currently find some being sold on eBay.
Hot on the heels of the latest Canon coffee mug craze, here’s another fun item for you to drool over: a Canon mode dial vinyl decal for your laptop. What better way to show your love for photography and/or nerdiness by displaying a cryptic circle of symbols for the world to see? It’s available for $15 + shipping from suzieautomatic’s Etsy store.
Update: For more photos of the decal check out this Flickr set.
Looks like the Canon 70-200mm might not be as “collectible” as we all previously thought. Perhaps after seeing how the mugs went viral online, for the next two weeks Canon will be including a collectors mug with any purchase in its Canada eStore over $200 CAD. In the promotion they state that the value of the Canon Lens Collectors Travel Mug is $39.99 CAD. If you’re in Canada and were planning on buying gear anyway, now might be a good time.
Thanks for the tip, jersel!
Update: Justin informs us that you can buy the mug directly for $29.99 CAD from Vistek.
