Canon Lens Mug Review And Giveaway

DSC_9437 (by udijw)On the left, this is me, in my secret headquarters contemplating a move to Canon. Or am I? If you’ll remember about 2 months ago cool canon lens shaped mugs were observed on the Olympic booth held by some lucky journalists (yup, photoshooting the Olympics just have it merits).

I actually twitted that if anyone knows how to get a mug like this they be declared hero and win internal fame. (PDN link died since then).

Well Canon
are now selling thise direct. In the internet era it is rare that a store’s name is a 100% match with what it does, but you gotta hand it, those guys live up to their name.

Canon Mugs are now selling two kinds of mugs: a 70-200 L f/4 thermos (on the left image) and a 24-105 travel cup.

The Giveaway

Is that a Canon Lens? (by
 udijw)There are two travel mugs and one thermos up for grabs. Here is how to get one: Follow @diyphotography on twitter and Twit an original use for a Canon Lens and include the URL of this post. On June 8 I will pick the coolest use to receive the thermos and randomly select two winenrs to revceive a travel cup.

If you run out of creative juices and simply want to enter you can always say something like “RT: @diyphotography check it out, Canon Lens used a coffee mug giveaway at please rt”.

For the winner selection and the drawing I’ll be looking for in the twit so please, get as creative as you wish with the uses, just don’t forget to include that spesific url.
