Travel Pretty: Stylish Camera Bags

Buying a new camera can be a daunting experience. Buying a camera bag is a lot more fun! In a world full of camera jargon, it took me weeks to decide which camera to go for – it was the Panasonic Lumix GX-7 (just in case you’re wondering). Parting with such a big amount of cash (the equivalent of a city break or even a long haul flight) is such a BIG commitment.

Now the deed is done I’m excited for buying a camera case. It has to be practical – padded, sturdy, spacious…yada yada…but, I also want something that is pretty and stylish. I don’t want to go for the boring black kind. I want to be able to securely stow my treasured possession, but I don’t want to end up carrying a camera bag and a handbag. The best way to see a new city is on foot and there’s nothing worse than being loaded down with heaps of stuff.

And so, I’ve discovered a world of stylish camera bags for women. It hasn’t been an easy experience. It seems not everyone wants a pretty bag. To save you the trouble, here’s my fave finds…

Stylish Camera Bags

Chapel

This gorgeous bag from Kelly Moore is amazing. It comes in loads of stylish colours, including a burnt orange and classic navy. However, the hot pink is by far my favourite. It’s extremely versatile; you can wear it as a backpack, shoulder bag or simply carry as a handheld. The straps can be removed and added depending on your trip.

It has detachable padded compartments that can be rearranged to suit your camera and lenses. The main compartment has a zipper, so you can feel assured that your kit isn’t moving. It also has a satchel flap that folds over the zipper and can be clasped down to ensure prying hands remain away from your precious camera. Did I mention it’s gorgeous? Priced at $229 (about £144)*, think of it as a necessity – a very pretty necessity.

Georgia Nautical

I’m always partial to a stripe or two, so it’s probably not that surprising that I love this bag from Jo Totes. It looks like a regular handbag from the outside, but inside it’s divided into three main compartments. They’re padded so you can safely store your camera and additional lenses. They’re even detachable so you can move them around to accommodate your own kit. This hybrid bag has a pocket for your iPhone (or similar) and another one for your keys too. Priced at $109 (about £68)*, it’s not too bad for a camera and handbag in one. Jo Totes (by Johansen Camera Bags) ships worldwide.

Riva

Riva is another bag from Kelly Moore – she definitely knows what she’s doing. This is the smallest of the range, but can still fit a DSLR with a lens attached. Just like the others, you can move the padded interiors to suit your kit. The bottom of the bag is also padded so you don’t need to worry when you put it on the floor. It has a small zipper to store change, keys, cards etc.

The bag is made from water resistant material, so although you’ll probably want to escape the rain you don’t need to immediately panic. All in all, it’s practical and another stunner. It’s priced at $149 (about £94)*.

♥ Lockwood

This cute bag comes in a range of colours, but the sunshine yellow one is my fave. It’s named after Don Lockwood, a character in the Hollywood film, Singin’ in the Rain. It’s water resistant, so forget singing in the rain, you’ll be searching for those gloomy shots with no worries at all. It can fit a DSLR with a short lens attached, an extra lens and an iPad mini. It’s surprisingly affordable – just $99 (about £62).
