Protect your camera with a stylish camera bag
Maybe you received a shiny, new camera for Christmas, or maybe you just resolved to finally dust off the one that’s been sitting in your closet. A stylish camera bag will help keep your DSLR from becoming a burden when you’re on to go. We love that there are options in every color, and a variety of materials, to keep your DSLR safe without breaking your back — or your camera.[scrollGallery ID=166]
The rose detail on the Rose Teal bag is a whimsical, feminine touch (Johansen Camera Bags, $89). The faux-leather keeps this adorable bag budget-friendly, and the convertible bag — it includes a removable cross-body strap — looks vintage, while being equipped with all the modern qualities that keep your camera safe.
Kelly Moore’s Libby bag is a photographer’s dream (Kelly Moore, $249). The chic camera bag includes five padded, removable dividers, so you can decide on the best configuration for your equipment. You can also carry a laptop — up to 15 inches — in the bag, making it a perfect all-in-one bag.
The blue and white striped fabric on the Georgia Nautical bag makes it a stylish camera bag that can stand in for a statement accessory in your wardrobe (Johansen Camera Bags, $109). With an inner pocket for a tablet, another for your phone and wallet, and three Velcro-equipped dividers, you can be sure that all of your equipment is safe and easily accessible.
Especially if you’re not used to carrying around your DSLR, the weight of the camera might seem prohibitive for a long day. Try a backpack camera bag, like the Chapel bag (Kelly Moore, $229). The bag can convert to a messenger bag, and the removable padded basket allows you to use the bag as a regular backpack on days you’re not carrying your camera.
When you want your keys and phone available at all times, the Missy Mint bag is a great camera bag for you (Johansen Camera Bags, $119). The exterior pockets aren’t just stylish — their magnetic closures make them easy to open and close. With a laptop sleeve and five re-positionable dividers, this roomy bag will hold all of your camera equipment easily.
Carry your camera and tablet in style with The Chelsea (Ona Bags, $369). The classic bowler isn’t the roomiest bag on the market, but it’s stylish enough to be worn for any occasion. If you don’t want to sling the bag on your shoulder, attach the included cross-body strap to free up your hands.
We love the Gracie Magenta bag for so many reasons (Johansen Camera Bags, $119). The bag hugs your body, making it comfortable to carry, which is so important for days when you’re hitting multiple locations. The Gracie bag holds a tablet, has seven spacious pockets, and has extra padding on the main two-thirds of the bag. Your camera will stay safe, and you’ll feel like you’re carrying a trendy purse instead of a camera bag.
The Union Street Bag is the perfect bag if you want something a little rugged and virtually gender-neutral (Ona Bags, $489). Some significant others don’t want to be seen lugging around a pink camera bag, and when you’re on vacation, it’s nice to have an extra set of hands so you can capture the shots you want at a moment’s notice. The Union Street is definitely an investment, but with the ability to carry your camera, three lenses, and a 15-inch laptop, your family will adore the versatile bag for years.
Cover all your camera bases — well, camera straps
Even with the most perfect camera bag, photographers know you’ll be spending a ton of time with your camera around your neck. Camera strap covers are a fashionable way to make carrying your camera around your neck just a little more comfortable.
