I pose a question to my readers, both regulars and those who randomly stumbled upon the Plot by way of a search engine.
Who can point me toward some nice girly camera bags? I don’t need one for a little fixed-lens point-and-shoot, no. I need a big bag, one large enough to hold a nearly-DSLR-sized prosumer camera with a barrel zoom on it, plus have room for a wallet and incidentals. Good padding is a must (or I need to have room inside to retrofit some into it). And…It must be girly. In other words, not black. Not utilitarian. I don’t want the comfortable shoes of camera bags.
In other words, I don’t want anything that remotely resembles any of these bags:
Oh, and I’m not talking Prada here. It needs to be less than $50.
I’ve learned that some of my best shots are those I happened upon by accident, and I’ve been thankful my camera was at my hip. My Samsonite camera bag is purse-like, but black. I want something not only well-suited for my camera, but for my personality.
I know such bags have to be out there. Those who have them should publicize their products more. I promise I’ll share all good links sent my way, because I know I’m not the only photographer seeking something a snazzy camera purse.
