The Camera Bag: This Nikon zoom lens is actually a portable speaker

This Nikon AF-S 55-200mm F/4-5.6 zoom lens is not a lens all. It's actually a small portable speaker you can use to add volume to your laptop, iPhone, iPad or smart phone.

The "Portable Lens USB Speaker" has a built-in battery that's charged via a USB line. When fully charged, it can crank your tunes for up to four hours.

Other features on the faux lens include a Micro SD card slot; an on/off switch; and buttons to pause and skip over songs.

Plug it into your lappie and kick out the jams while you edit photos. Unfortunately, this Nikon "lens" has no Vibration Reduction built-in so be careful you don't shake the walls while blasting The Black Keys.

When it's time to move on to your next assignment, put the (included) lens cap on top of the lens speaker, and stash it in your camera bag with the rest of your Nikon glass.

It's available here for $14.59
