Cookbook of Recipes by Famous Photogs

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!

Amazing Canon 5D Mark II USB Drive

This might be old news for some of you, but I just came across it so I’m guessing many of you haven’t seen it before either. This is a 4GB USB drive that looks exactly like a miniature Canon 5D Mark II, with an EF 24-105mm lens as the drive, and the camera body as the case.

You can find them on eBay by searching for “canon 5d usb“. These little things will set you back about $94 apiece, including shipping.

Don’t need that much power in a USB drive? There’s also a 2GB flash drive that looks like a Canon 450D (AKA Rebel XSI). It actually costs more ($110) and seems to be a bit more rare. The USB drive is also in the body rather than the lens, and it comes with a kit lens rather than a nice L lens:

Seeing as the lens ship from Hong Kong, Canon probably doesn’t have anything to do with these lenses, just like the Canon 24-105 coffee mugs that appeared when the Canon L lens mug became a crazy Internet hit.

Anyhow, if you want to say you have a full frame USB drive and don’t mind spending semi-big bucks for one, this is the way to go.

Canon Mode Dial Vinyl Laptop Decal

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.

Photo Album Shaped Like a Memory Card

Here’s a bizarre combination of old and new: a photo album that looks like a gigantic SD card. It holds 60 4×6” prints, and will be available from Spinning Hat starting in April for £9.99 (~$16). What would be awesome is if prints from the shop always came in these things.
