After I bought my big-ass Nikon a few months ago, I realized I needed a way to tote it around. I was just tossing it around in my purse like it was no big thang. Uh…when you have a piece of equipment that costs a month’s rent, you shouldn’t abuse it.
But I also didn’t want to be “that girl,” carrying a so-not-cute camera bag to nice events I might want to photograph. Plus I like to minimize the amount of bags I’m carrying on any given day, so a purse plus a camera bag didn’t seem like a great option for me.
Luckily I found a solution via Amazon! The Vintage Parisian Style Top Flip Camera Bag was exactly what I needed.
What I love about this bag is that it’s a bag I’d actually carry!
It’s totally my style, unlike many other camera bags. Call me crazy, but I’d prefer to not look like a tourist when I’m out to dinner at a trendy restaurant!
But most important, it’s functional. Inside there’s a soft barrier so that your camera fits nicely on one side. It’s protected from the rest of the junk in your purse and it won’t slide around.
(Taking a picture of your camera in its bag means you cannot use your camera…pardon my Palm Pre shot.)
So it’s super convenient and cute! But best of all, when you ask someone to take a picture of you and your friends…and you reach for this cute bag…and they are expecting a girly little point-and-shoot…and you pull your DSLR…and they react like you’ve just pulled out a big black dildo (true story)…you’ll die laughing!
