Camera Bags

So I'm looking into a new camera bag, and am curious as to what y'all like and don't like. Hubby was willing to buy me one yesterday at Best Buy, but I told him that I really need to do some more research on them first. Who better to ask, than all of you lovely ladies? Smile

I have one made by Crumpler, I like it but wish I'd have gotten one size up. My favorite lens is almost too big to fit! (I have the 3 million dollar bag.)

I have a lowepro which is good but I need bigger... definitely get a bigger one than you think you need.

I have the Kelly Moore Classic Bag. I love that it's stylish enough to use as a normal purse. Yesterday I went out with DS and it has room for my camera with 50mm attached, diapers, wipes, wallet, sunglasses, phone, snacks. If I'm going on a shoot, I take out most everything but my wallet and phone and it holds my camera with 50mm and my 105mm. I kind of wish I'd gotten the hobo one so it looks even more like a regular purse on regular days. It is a bit too big for trips to the grocery store though.

Oh, you have found my vice Sad

I have a small Jill-e (up for sale if anyone is interested!!!!). While I loved it when I first had it, I've now out grown it and can't find a good configuration with my current line-up of equipment.

I have a small purse messenger bag I bought from Kohls and created a camera bag from that. This is my most used bag of all time. LOVE it Smile

I also have a knock-off Crumpler 8 million dollar home. It was 35 bucks shipped from Canada and is my storage bag at the house. It holds all my equipment when it's just sitting around.

I'd LOVE to get a Kelly Moore or Epiphanie bag....one of the two is next on my list. NOW to justify the price tag to DH Wink

ETA: I also have a Kata back pack that holds camera equipment and a 17 in laptop.

We have this one. We wanted a backpack, DH wanted one that you could leave the lens on the camera, and we wanted one you could put a laptop in too. It's amazing and fits everything. You can put diapers/wipes/kid stuff in the laptop part too if you wanted.

Kaci, what all do you put inside your Crumpler? I probably like the look the best of what has been suggested (at a price we can afford). I have my XTi, 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses and my speedlite. I'd like to be able to put a couple diapers and wipes in there as well.

The one I have only fits the body (canon xsi) with lens attached (canon 100 mm macro, its a pretty hefty one) and a spare battery. No room for anything else! I have 3 kids age 4 and under though, so no camera bag would fit everything I need for an outing LOL!

looks like the 5 mil bag would suit your needs, or go up one if youre planning for the future!

I saw this one just today and think that this is where I would like to go for my next bag:

I currently have the Tamrac Velocity 7x and it's a very useful bag. I would just like something that looks a bit more feminine. :+)

Camera Bag suggestion

Hi Ladies,

Saw this and thought I would add that I have 3 designs of stylish camera bags out specifically for women that might also be a good option. You can check out the bags at www.drehartmann.com. I've personally traveled all over the place with all 3 designs and they're pretty handy and stylish if I do say so myself Smile
They're lined with a protective foam layer to keep your gear safe, but I've also used them as carry on bags while traveling and they hold a couple lenses, my DSLR, my wallet, cash, etc.
Hope that's helpful!
