Giant Lens Plush Pillows are Perfect for Your DSLR Body
July 9th, 2011
Photography geeks listen up. You can get gigantic pillows that look like lenses, and that would look really cool on your couch or bed. These things remind me of when I worked in the hospital; we had a giant 1-liter syringe used for calibrating machinery. I would at times whip that thing out and tell the person I needed to get a little blood. That is the only thing I miss about a “real” job. You could do the same thing with these giant lens pillows, just tell your subject you need a close-up and then whirl around with this thing on your camera.
You can get the lens cushions from a company called Plushtography. They are made from fleece material and felt. I suspect that felt would be as itchy as a pillow made from cat hair. The pillows come in three different versions including the Canon 24-105mm pillow that is the largest one available. The other two are smaller and designed to look like a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 lens and a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.
All three of the pillows have the correct markings on them from the real lenses. You can order them up now directly from Plushtography with the big pillow costing $80 (USD) and the smaller ones going for $35. Where is the giant DSLR body pillow to go with these lenses?
