Take a few tasty shots of espresso with the Camera Lens Mug. Designed to look and feel just like a regular camera lens, this detailed mug is great for the office or bringing the world into focus first thing in the morning.
The flared lens-cap lid will stop any dust and fluff from falling into your cuppa and will keep the contents hot while it's sitting on your desk. It even doubles as a coaster. Or if you’re anything like us, a tactical biscuit holder. Now hold that smile... perfect!

I was wandering if it was dishwasher safe? Only that would be a great added bonus. Joe, Redhill - 24th August 2013
Firebox says: Hiya Joe,
Great question! I'm really sorry to tell you that this is not dishwasher or microwave safe.
This mug is fab!!! So life like. It could be improved by having a screw on lid to make it portable for 'on the go' busy students! :-). Helen Hammond, Grimsby - 24th January 2013
As a professional photographer I thought this would be a perfect thing for me, my thought was correct! The smell at first was quite horrible but with a wash it went away! (unfortunately the lens hood doesn't fit my actual lens, which needs hood! :D) Mighty pleased with it. If anyone knows a photographer, this is the perfect gift for them!

I got this for my dad for fathers day - he was just blown away. Coolest mug he'd ever seen. The detail is excellent.
If you know a keen photographer - get them this mug alongside the camera lens cooking timer and the film usb stick.

Bought for a friend that's a Camera nerd. They loved it, very realistic looking and a good size. Alice, Leicester - 18th June 2012

I got one of these - and it is bigger than it looks - but I was just going to mention a fix that worked for me for the nasty plastic smell issue:
1. Give it a proper wash with hot water and washing-up liquid, like you would with any new stuff that you plan to put food or drink into.
2. Use a 'Nan' type of trick: stand it in the sink, fill to the brim with hot (not boiling) water, stir in a teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda, let it sit there until it's gone cold. (I had to do this step twice, by the way).
3. Give it another regular wash with hot water and a squirt of Fairy Liquid.
That sorted my one out, so that I can now happily both drink coffee and confuse passing colleagues at the same time. Magic, Hertfordshire - 14th January 2012
