Girly camera bags

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:

That’s right…nothing like these:

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.

  1. I’m envious that you have a “prosumer” camera and accessories. Any large book bag should do the trick.

  2. That’s really cute! I’m not sure if the thermal insulation would be shock-absorbent like that used for laptop and camera bags, though. It gives me some ideas, though.

  3. I’m definitely more like you when it comes to buying camera bags, the cheaper the better, but these bags are definitely worth the splurge. The B-Hobo bag by Kelly Moore (or any of her bags, really) are high quality and the perfect combo of girly and professional. They also work as a regular purse or messenger bag, too.
