A little while back I was asked to review an item from PresentsForMen and straight away I knew what I wanted. For ages I've been after one of these mugs but have never got my hands on one normally because the Canon version was so expensive.
This one was perfect at just £14.99 its exactly what I was after. Now anyone that knows me knows I love photography and also I love my tea and biscuits so what better gift for me than this?
I've tried this mug out in various different ways. One when I was out travelling and knew there would be no way of getting a hot drink so I filled this up with my tea and after a few hours it was still warm and tasted like a cup of tea. I have also used it while at home and used the lens cover to place my bourbon biscuits in it so I didn't drive my wife mad by leaving crumbs everywhere.
I've shown this to various other photographers and they've all said it looks like the real lens without the £2000 price tag, and they've all mentioned that they'll be adding it to their Christmas lists.
I've used it for tea and hot chocolate and it kept them warm for well over two hours. The thing to note is you can put it in the dishwasher but for me that's not a problem as I don't have one.
The Camera Lens Cup is available from PresentsForMen at £14.99
Value for Money 8/10
