ThinkGeek is selling a spy-themed T-shirt with a twist — the camera being used by the spy in the design is actually a working camera. The Electric Spy Camera Shirt shoots 640 x 480 images (storing about 150) with a remote you can use while having it tucked away in your pocket. It costs $40 from the ThinkGeek store.
This watch has a maximum aperture of f/2. Wait… What? That’s right, this novelty watch for uber photo geeks by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild has f-stop numbers on its face instead of the 12 hours used by normal people. If you’re ready to geek-out your wrist, it’s available in their online shop for $36.
At Photokina 2010 Pentax had a toy capsule vending machine that spit out mini Pentax DSLR cameras in exchange for coins. The colorful cameras are made to attach to standard hot shoes, giving your camera a little buddy while shooting.
If only the toy capsule machines at the grocery store dispensed these things!

We reported on the Nikon coffee cup that finally appeared on the web months ago, but didn’t get our hands on one until today. We did an unboxing of the Canon coffee mug and thermos back in June, so we’ll do a similar hands-on for this Nikon one. Like the Canon ones, there’s a whole bunch of places making these things (none of which are the camera companies themselves), so there might be some variation on how the thing looks depending on where you buy it from.
Apparently babies can’t resist a good checkboard pattern. ShutterBuddy is a camera attachment that surrounds your camera or lens with a checkerboard pattern, causing babies to stare uncontrollably at your camera (whether in fear or fascination, we have no idea). You can order your own for $15 through the ShutterBuddy website, or you can spend some time creating a do-it-yourself version by printing out or drawing your own checkboard pattern.
Photojojo just added the “Mini Model Camera” to their store. This is a 1/6 scale miniature model DSLR system that actually allows you to swap the tiny lenses around. It’s definitely a cute and unique gift, but it comes at a no-so-miniature price — the 1.5 inch camera and three lenses are priced at $28.
There’s a price to pay for being able to brag about having the “compactest” camera among your friends.
Here’s a terrific “Doh! Why didn’t I think of that?” idea shared by Flickr user Ralph Odenwälder in his photostream: create a set of matching Polaroid photographs for an awesome do-it-yourself memory card game that you can either give someone as a present or play yourself!
Of course, you could do the same thing by making duplicate prints with your digital or film photographs, but somehow it just doesn’t feel the same…
Check out this solid brass Nikon belt buckle, a fusion of masculinity and photo geekiness.
If you’re a die-hard Nikonian and have to get your hands on one of these babies, you can find them on eBay for anywhere between a few dollars (for auctions) and a staggering $88 for a Buy It Now listing with free shipping. Just search for the term “Nikon buckle“.
Strangely enough, a similar search for Canon buckles doesn’t return anything, leading us to conclude that Canon support isn’t as manly as Nikon support.
