Camera Purses, Camera Bags for Women… They’re All The Same

One of my most visited posts on this blog is about camera bags for women.  Or camera purses.  Or stylish camera bags.  Whatever you call them, they’re all the same thing and they’re what women want.  When I wrote that over two years ago, I was shopping myself but had trouble finding what I liked.  I eventually found a bag I liked, but created a list so others could reference.  But there’s no images.  And I just don’t like that.

So I did what any normal American female would do: create a Pinterest board of stylish camera bags!

I decided to fall over into Pinterest with my camera purse links not so long ago.  Actually, it was after my adorable green Kelly Moore bag was ripped off in Atlanta.  (Looks so much like a purse, they had no idea it was a camera bag… without a camera in it!)  So I was back in the market for a new camera bag.  Actually, I still am as I haven’t decided.  (I’m the worst at making decisions.  Just ask the hubs.)  But what better way to make a decision that to *see* all of what is available.

I mean, do I want to stick with the hobo bag I loved?  Or maybe try the new 2 Sues or Juju bag from Kelly Moore?  Her bags are a bit heavy but look so nice and come in the BEST colors!

Or would I want to go larger, have a catch all bag that’s easy to take with me on sessions where I need more than my shootsac.  I mean, a bag with roller wheels can make it easier.  (Or clunkier.)

Or go smaller and just try an insert.  I’m actually leaning this way as several of my purses are large enough to hold an insert.  But there doesn’t appear to be much room for an extra lens or flash…

Or go a completely different direction?  Try a brand a never heard of before or maybe an Etsy shop that handmakes camera bags with personality.  I mean, this chevron number caught my eye a few weeks back… I just haven’t decided yet.  It’s too hard.

But with the Pinterest board, not only can you be introduced to several brands of camera purses that are available, but you can also *see* them, browse, compare more easily.  And it’s a cinch to update – whenever I come across a new bag, you better believe it will get pinned.  [Because I love Pinterest.  It’s the best idea since sliced bread.  Where was Pinterest ten years ago?!?]

So enjoy the Stylish Camera Bag Pinterest board and repin to your heart’s content.  And with the holidays right around the corner, don’t be afraid to leave a hint for Santa. :)

Joan Nova - I wish I’d seen this before but I’m very happy with the bag I just purchased on ETSY — though these are all gorgeous, especially yours. Since I wanted it basically for travel, this one immediately sung out to me.
