meet my new camera bag!

July 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

Next week I’m leaving on a trip to go to Seattle, St. Louis, and New York.  I want to take my camera with me everywhere, but I don’t want to LOOK like I have my big dslr with me everywhere. SO! I’ve been looking high and low for a bag that will not scream BIG FANCY CAMERA.  Especially since I have a brand new one coming my way this week!  Anyhow, so meet my new favorite bag!  (or I really should say two bags.)

Originally, I thought about getting one of those Kelly Moore bags.  They’re pretty fashionable, but even the smallest one seemed too big for me and my petite frame.  Instead, I found the ONA camera bag insert.  At $60, it’s not cheap.  But, it’s the perfect size to hold my Nikon D80 with a lens attached and 1 extra lens.  It also has pockets for credit cards, SD cards, and lens caps.  And, since it’s an insert, it turns any bag that fits into a camera bag!  For me, I wanted to find something just big enough for the insert (so that the bag isn’t too big) but also had a pocket or two that could hold my iphone and keys.

Enter this little gem of a bag from H&M.  I’ll freely admit, the quality isn’t superb, but since I really only would use this bag on vacations, it doesn’t seem that big a deal.  Plus, it’s only $25.  It has a top handle as well as a longer strap so you can wear it crossbody.  There is also an outside pocket that would hold my keys and cell phone.  As a bonus, my ipad fits too!  All around, it’s just a little bigger than the green bag I carry around everyday.  So for ladies out there who don’t want to carry around a big, ugly camera bag, I highly recommend an insert! dslr bagdslr bagdslr bagdslr bagdslr bag
